SECURITY AND CARE
Extensive efforts have been made to take care of your child's health and well-being. Very thorough sign in & out procedures ensure your child's safety each day. All custody issues are dealt with, in confidence, with the Camp Director. All staff must submit a current police screening with their application. All staff participate in an extensive week long training before camp starts.
There are numerous trees and marquee tents on site to provide shady program areas. Children eat their lunches indoors in a designated space for their group. The college has air conditioned classrooms for our use on extreme heat and inclement weather days. As part of our Sun Smart policy, all staff and campers must wear hats, apply sunscreen and drink water throughout the day.
APPLICATION OF SUNSCREEN AND INSECT REPELLANT
All campers are encouraged to apply a waterproof sunscreen at the start of the day, before and after swim times, and again over the lunch hour. Children are encouraged to apply insect repellant of their choice before going into any forested area each day. Staff are there to remind campers of these applications and assist campers if need be.
NUT SENSITIVE CAMP
King Day Camp asks that campers and staff do not bring any nut products to camp. We do everything we can to be sensitive to nut allergies but we cannot guarantee a 'nut free' environment. If you child has a life-threatening allergy, please ensure that you complete your child's medical form and return it to the camp office well before the week your child is enrolled at camp. Children must bring a minimum of two epi-pens to camps with them for the week.
All King Day Camp staff must have a current Standard First Aid and CPR-C certificate. All Camp Staff are equipped with a two-way radio. All full-time directors wear cell phones each day so they can be contacted at any time in case of an emergency. All camp staff carry first aid kits when away from the main camp island. The Camp Director is on call 24-7 during the summer operating season.
