We like to have fun, but we want every camper to be safe. We aim to create an emotionally, physically, and spiritually safe environment. Here are some ways we do that.
Highly Trained Staff
All of the staff at Grace Adventures go through intensive weeks of training in order to be prepared for the job of being a counselor, activity staff, or support staff. Staff are taught safety procedures for all activities, stages of development in children, behavior management, spiritual training, and how to work in a team based environment.
On-Site Health Officer
There is a Health Officer on-site 24/7 during the summer. The Health Officer is trained to deal with all types of medication and doses, sicknesses, treatment of minor bumps and scratches as well as equipped to deal with any serious emergency that may happen.
Every single one of the staff that works at Grace Adventures has been screened, interviewed, background checked, and reference checked. You can be sure that the staff who are taking care of your child are trustworthy and safe. We take very seriously the selection and training of our staff, from counselor to kitchen staff.
Our staff are trained to use and run every activity site we have. We certify our lifeguards through the Red Cross, spend many hours training on high-adventure safety equipment, and are trained in group facilitation and dynamics.
Relationship Centered Ministry
The mission to impact people with Jesus Christ cannot be accomplished without strong relationships that model Christ-like behavior. Our staff are committed to building relationships with every camper so that they can experience the love to Christ. The staff are also focused on modeling that behavior to other staff and visitors on the campus.
The staff at Grace Adventures are here for one purpose, to impact people with Jesus Christ. That singular mission is behind every activity and event that happens. While staff may serve in different areas of the ministry, they understand that all parts must not only co-exist, but must work together as one body to accomplish the mission.
