Q: What are your safety protocols?
A. Safety is our number one priority at CampOUT
- Currently CampOUT BOD is in contact with security teams to establish additional security during the week of camp.
- We only disclose the exact camp location to the campers' families and staff who have registered once camp gets closer. The reasoning behind the location not being disclosed to the general public is for their protection. We also rent from a private facility so trespassers are not tolerated. There is a video of our camp location on our website. As you can see it is a large facility and even if there were protesters they would not be seen or heard on the outskirts of the camp.
- All of our staff have to pass a level 2 background check and fingerprinting. We will also all be trained on what to do in any and all emergency situations following our safety protocol guidelines.
-- Bag checks during Camper check in day.
- CampOUT has zero tolerance for discrimination.
-CampOUT Florida has the expectations for all staff and campers to treat everyone in the camp community with respect at all times.
-All cabins chaperoned cabins by staff members
