Health & Safety

The health and safety of students, campers, and staff are Stevenson’s top priority. We provide counselor supervision, proper safety equipment, and training to help ensure students & campers have a safe experience. Our staff encourage campers to gain independence, learn new skills, and build confidence while maintaining the structure and supervision necessary for their safety.

Ensuring your child’s safety is paramount at Stevenson Summer Programs. Our safety protocols are robust, with enhanced sanitization practices, health screenings, and proactive measures to create a secure environment. Accredited and certified, our program prioritizes a fundamental sense of safety to give parents peace of mind.

Our Staff & counselors are an integral part of providing excellent care to our students and campers. We assign at least two counselors to each wing of 8 to 10 children. The counselors/staff sleep in the same dorm wing with the campers and supervise the group throughout the day. All of our counselors attend a 2-day orientation at the beginning of the summer, prior to camper arrival, to train in program areas, learn our emergency procedures, and understand health and safety precautions. Counselors remind and/or help campers with personal hygiene, including use of sunscreen, keeping hydrated, changing clothes daily, brushing teeth, and showering every day. 

We also require students, campers and staff to follow safety guidelines in order to participate in each activity. Our staff are trained in their specific program area, and they provide campers with careful instruction and supervision. All counselors are certified in CPR, staff instructing waterfront activities are Lifeguard certified, and all backpacking instructors are Wilderness First Aid certified.

Camp support staff provide assistance to our camp community by checking campers’ hands before each meal, inspecting dorms daily, and helping younger campers with personal hygiene.

We encourage proper hygiene while your students are away from home. Students who wish to shower daily can do so during designated times (usually before breakfast, during rest hour, or immediately following evening activities). Private showers with hot water are available throughout the dorms. 

Registered nurses are on-site and are always available to campers and staff for first aid, disbursement of medications, and general care as needed. As per the American Camp Association Standards, we store and dispense all medications through the Wellness Center. For illnesses and medical emergencies requiring additional assistance, we follow appropriate EMS procedures. The closest hospital is approximately 5 minutes from camp. Parents must complete a health history and a medication form for each camper prior to camp attendance. All medications and health histories are confidential. If a camper is treated for any illness or injury that requires them to miss an activity or stay overnight, parents (or guardians) will be contacted and updated. Parents will not be contacted when their child receives minor first aid (splinter removal, cleaning of a cut, or ointment for dry skin, for example).

Our program prioritizes the well-being of every participant. With well-equipped medical facilities, staff trained in first aid, and comprehensive procedures for handling emergencies, Stevenson Summer Programs ensures a safe and prepared environment.
