Health & Safety

Camper health and safety is our number one priority. We take all measures possible to ensure the safety our our groups.

Trained Camp Staff All of our campers are supervised and cared for by camp staff at a 1:6 ratio, always having 2 staff members for each tent group of scouts. All staff are trained in camper care and wellness, risk awareness and wilderness first aid. Our lifeguards are certified in aquatic supervision and rescue techniques.

Medical and First Aid Care At Camp Impeesa we have access to 911 and local medical facility is just 30 minutes away. We keep a well-stocked supply of first aid equipment on site and provide private space for campers who may be not feeling well during camp session.

Emergency Procedures Our camp staff train and practice our on-site emergency procedures and protocol during our pre-season to ensure all camp safety if the need arises.

Camper Medication and Allergies At Impeesa we take all pre-caution when dealing with campers that have any medical needs or special dietary needs. Any medication to be administered will only be done so with written permission from the parent, this is complete during registration and double checked at check in. Over the counter medication is only given with a phone call to the parent for permission. Our kitchen is nut free and can accommodate the majority of dietary needs of campers. Parents must indicate all medical and dietary needs on camper physical fitness forms.
