Health & Safety


Our well-equipped Health Centre is staffed with an expert medical team. A doctor and nursing staff live on site and therefore are available to your child at all times. As well, should the need ever arise, we are 15 km from a hospital. Our Health Centre is fully stocked with medical supplies to ensure that most camper ailments can be dealt with on-site.  All medications, except inhalers and epi pens, are kept in the Health Centre and dispensed after meals and before bed. Our medical team is hand selected for their nurturing qualities and ability to accommodate campers with varying degrees of needs. Every camper’s health issues are kept in strict confidence.

Our Health Centre staff also ensures that our cabin staff is trained in:
✓ Administering Epi Pens
✓ Sun protection protocol


You are entrusting us with your child and we take this responsibility very seriously. Therefore, we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all our campers and staff.
