All camp staff members are carefully screened and selected based on:
All Day Camp staff members attend a mandatory and comprehensive pre-camp training program, some of which includes CPR and first aid training, water safety, and fire safety. Most of our Day Camp staff work for the Y year-round in our Childcare Department.

Other medications that need to be given during camp hours will be locked in the camp director’s camp backpack and given at the prescribed time. All medication given will be signed off with dosage amount and time given with staff initials.
