At Royal City, the health and safety of our campers is our number one priority. There are a number of areas we address to ensure a safe environment for all campers and staff.
Return to Camp Guidelines
Provincial camping associations have developed Return to Camp Guidelines which RCSC will be adhering to. In addition to the provincial guidelines, RCSC has created our own Return to Camp operating guidelines detailing the key components of how our staff will conduct and implement the necessary safety procedures. RCSC is committed to meeting these standards and adapting as required by health guidelines.
Covid 19 protocol
The covid-19 pandemic has made life very difficult for all individuals and organizations this past year. In developing our covid-19 safety plan, Royal City followed local public health guidelines and is actively monitoring changes recommended by public health agencies and professionals. We will continue to monitor developments and adjust our procedures and protocols as necessary. While our camps are held primarily outdoors, if we need to go indoors due to inclement weather, campers and staff will be required to wear masks. We ask that families send 2-3 masks each day to camp, however, we will have masks available for purchase onsite should a camper forget it.
WE ARE READY AND EXCITED FOR THE 2021 SEASON!
First Aid Kits
All of our camp locations have a substantial first aid kit to accommodate most situations at camp. This first aid kit is held by our onsite Supervisor but accessible by all of our staff. It is constantly replenished as supplies are used up.
Allergies & Medical forms
We recognize that many children who attend our camps have a medical condition or allergy. We ask that parents complete the appropriate form during the registration process, however, our onsite Supervisor will have access to extra forms at camp. In the case of anaphylaxis, parents/guardians must complete the Epi-Pen authorization form (also available online) so our camp staff are fully aware of the situation and act appropriately. Safety First
On the first day of camp, you will receive a newsletter that identifies the onsite camp cell phone in case you need to reach our staff during the day. This cell phone is also used for calling parents and EMS in case of any situations that arise. Please understand that during certain moments in the day, our camp staff may not be able to answer a call immediately. As soon as there is a break in action and if safe to do so, they will call you back. Thanks for your patience.
With our campers being conducted primarily outdoors except during inclement weather, we ask that all campers bring and apply their own sunscreen. We will have touch-free sunscreen spray available on site if needed. Campers will be reminded several times a day to apply sunscreen. Where possible, we’ll also conduct some activities in the shade or under shelter.
Sign in/ out & head counts
For the safety of all campers, we ask parents/guardians to sign in and sign out your child each day. If a camper wishes to get to and/or leave camp via walking, biking, bus, etc., they will be required to have a sign in/out release form completed by a parent/guardian prior to camp. This form is also available during the online registration process.
Staff certifications & background
Our staff have a passion to provide the best possible and safest experience for your camper. Most of our staff have first aid/CPR in addition to other certifications. All staff must have a police background check provided before working at camp.
