Health & Safety / covid-19



HEALTH AND SAFETY ARE TOP PRIORITIES FOR US!

It takes a lot of trust to send a child away for a week and we don’t take that responsibility lightly! At Camp, our first organizational priority is the safety of our campers. A safe environment is the foundation for a fun summer camp experience. We have a great team working year-round to provide a safe and exciting place for your children.

covid-19 and summer 2022

At Camp Luther, the health and safety of our campers has always been our highest priority. During this COVID season, we have been working to ensure that we meet the guidelines of BC Public Health and the Fraser Health Authority. On top of the guidelines of social distancing, masks and extra cleaning protocols, last summer we pivoted our day camp programs to keep guests in family cohorts.

As we look to the summer of 2022, we will continue to follow the guidelines of public health officials and meet whatever requirements are in place so that we can host as many campers as possible for next summer.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely as we approach the summer. We will communicate with our community if anything changes. As a reminder, every camper that is registered for this summer can receive a 100% refund of their fees if they need to cancel because of anything COVID-related. To accommodate changes, we can also move campers to different weeks.

FIRST AID CERTIFIED STAFF
on site every week of the summer

We aim to have three or more advanced first aid staff on site every week of the summer. This team administers first aid, distributes camper medication, and delivers an opening day safety talk with all campers on sun safety, hydration and safe footwear. We also do waterfront safety talks at the beginning of each camp session, which includes lifejacket fittings, boat safety, and general waterfront communication. 

How We Do Things…

Medication

All medication is given to our team during check-in. Our First Aid attendant administers prescriptions at meal times and in the evening as necessary. Campers are not permitted to keep medication in cabins.

Emergencies

Early each week, the summer program team performs a routine practice drill. This ensures everyone knows what the alarm sounds like and where to go in the event of a missing person or emergency situation.

Training

Every year our summer team is trained to know how to deal with bullying, emergency situations, and camper injuries. Our Sr Staff Training is a week long and our Jr Staff Volunteers have a weekend together as well as daily staff meetings to remind staff of important updates.
