In any setting, there are always risks of accidental exposure to food allergens. The risk can easily be avoided if the camp staff, parents and medical personel (trainers) work together throughout the week.
Precautions are taken at all of our camps to ensure the upmost safety in all aspects of your childs time while he/she is away at camp. We rely heavily on the medical form turned in on the first day of camp. This helps our trainers set procedures in place to deal with accidental ingestion or contact and be prepared for all circumstances.
It is never a bad idea to remind your child before camp begins of a few simple guidelines that will help keep them out of harms way:
- Read every label and check with a counselor.
- Tell an adult if they feel a reaction starting.
- NOT go off alone if symptoms are beginning.
- Do not trade food with other campers.
- Do not eat anything with unknown ingredients.
As a parent, we encourage you to make personal contact with the Director before the start of camp if your child has a sever allergy or if you have any additional concerns. The more communication the better prepared we can be to give your child the best camp experience possible.
