Safety Information

Safety is our #1 priority for your child while at Summer Camp!

We know that we can only be effective at building relationships and ministering to campers when they feel safe, valued, and cared for. Our staff undergo multi-week training to understand how to best relate to your child, how to keep all kids included in the camp experience, and to how to relationally solve any problems that come up.

You can view more about our training and safety practices by visiting our Camp Safety webpage.
