Health & Safety
Number One Priority
Ensuring the highest safety standards
We are continually updating our equipment as well as training our staff in the most recent and evidence based instructional and safety techniques. All staff are first-aid trained, and all our counsellors are at minimum certified Bronze Cross Lifesaving Society lifeguards. All coaches are certified in their respective disciplines.
We pride ourselves on our mature and adult staff. All staff are a minimum of 19 years old with the exception of our junior staff who are 18 years old, have completed our leadership training, and work alongside our more experienced staff.
Our responsible staff and small staff-to-camper ratio enables us to have constant and appropriate supervision of campers at all times.
Full-time doctor and nurse in residence
Equipped with Medical facility on-site
Having a doctor at camp full time means we can treat any minor injuries or illnesses on site. Prescriptions that may be needed can be issued by our doctor.
Our doctors are Rick Senior, Derek Ng, Howie Krieger. They have been our camp doctors for many years and their own children have been campers at CAC.
In an event of an emergency, we have full access to metropolitan hospitals in North Bay and Sudbury that service Northern Ontario.
We will always inform parents if their child is unwell.
Accredited Overnight Camp
Adhering to over 400 separate standards
Canadian Adventure Camp is accredited by the Ontario Camps Association (OCA) and the Canadian Camping Association (CCA) and adheres to over 400 separate standards dealing with all aspects of camp operation including: health, safety, leadership, food, staffing, programming, administration, and maintenance.
As an accredited member of the Canadian Camps Association, we have access to the National Insurance Program. The coverage is specific to the camping industry and the needs that overnight camps have.
What our parents say...
Having medical staff always on site means that small accidents never become emergencies. I do not have to worry about her safety, and she does not have to worry about her own safety.
