Nursing and First Aid

firstaid

In addition to our cabin leaders trained in first aid, each camp week we find an additional staff volunteer who is a registered nurse (which is often the case) or a first aid trained person. This volunteer's only responsibly is to administer first aid when necessary and to administer campers' medication. All over-the-counter medication is given only with consent of guardians (see registration form) and is well documented. In the event of a medical emergency, there is a staff and insured vehicle available so that the camper can be transported to our local hospital located only 15 kilometres away.
