Health & Safety

Protecting your campers and our workers is our first priority.

The health and safety of your camper is at the top of our priority list.  Below are some ways in which we put that into action.  If you have any special circumstances or questions regarding this topic specific to your camper, please reach out to us directly.

  • Cedar Lake is very fortunate to have several nurses/nursing students who volunteer each summer.  We strive to staff each week of camp with a nurse, and we also train our staff in basic first aid.  If your child is taking medication, we are glad to dispense this as directed.
  • We keep a health form on each camper with pertinent information and emergency contact numbers.
  • Our summer staff spends a week before camps begin being trained to handle many situations.  Our directors prepare them to deal with the most common cuts and hurts and to use the nurse as needed.
  • All full-time camp directors maintain lifesaving, first aid, and CPR certifications.  We also encourage summer staff to get these certifications.
