Camp Oversight and Safety

 

 

  • Every camp employee and coach undergo background checks with both the US Department of Justice NSOPW Registry and the Indiana Sex and Violent Offender Registry
  • Every camp employee and coach is required to complete online training through Purdue University which includes:  “Youth Safety at Purdue - Reporting Child Abuse or Neglect” and  “Youth Safety at Purdue – Reporting Child Abuse” 
  • On average, we employ one coach for every 9 campers
  • Campers of like ages room on the same hallway in the residence halls
  • A camp coach is assigned to each hallway in the residence halls with their door clearly marked “coach” to help answer any questions or concerns
  • Campers move from one location (gyms, residence halls and cafeteria) to another as a group -  always, and at all times, with adult supervision
  • Several rollcalls are taken throughout each camp day to pass along info and to stay organized
