Sample Policies, Templates and Guidance for Camps

The application process for Recreational Camps for Children requires that a number of policies be developed and submitted.  The Department of Public Health has supplied guidance and templates for each of the required policies: contigency plans; disaster emergency plans; tornado/weather plans; emergency evacuation plans; health care plan; lost camper plan; lost swimmer plan; fire evacuation plan; discipline policy; procedures for reporting suspected child abuse or neglect; traffic control plan; and background checks for staff.  Your camp may edit these templates to fit your needs.
