Why Read This

Directors of camps that are located at a school or college are often knowledgeable about the camp’s instructional program, but they may not be as familiar with the ways to protect themselves and the host institution from related legal liability and negative publicity. This checklist provides camp directors step-by-step guidance to help minimize risks and increase the likelihood of a safe experience for campers. Topics covered include:

  • What to do before the camp begins
  • Inspecting for hazards and defects while the camp is in operation
  • Hiring, training, and supervising staff
  • Health and medical care
  • Policies and procedures
  • Medication management
  • Contact and health information
  • Emergency planning
  • Transportation
  • Contracts and insurance with third-party providers
