Supercamp is dedicated to meet and exceed all health & safety measures mandated by all levels of government as well as by the Quebec Camp Association (ACQ). We are continuously adapting our programming and procedures to maintain the lowest possible risk for our employees, our participants, and families.
All specific measures are detailed in the Infokit (published in May). Both parents an campers should be aware of all the rules in place. Here are only a few of the additional steps undertaken by the Supercamp to ensure the health and safety of its community:
- The installation of hand-sanitizing and hand-washing stations at key locations,
- The introduction of a triage procedure for campers and one for employees,
- New contactless drop-off and pick-up procedures,
- Reformatting of all activities and programs,
- Providing all employees with specific training regarding prevention of COVID-19 spread, mandated measures, and healthy habits against contagious infections,
- Decreasing the maximal camper capacity, etc.
Counsellor Training Ensuring Safety
Prior to the start of camp, Supercamp staff receives at least 50 hours of training to ensure they are thoroughly prepared for the upcoming summer. Its focuses are mainly on supervision and safety training which include behaviour intervention, animation and injury prevention. All staff must obtain their First Aid certification before the start of camp and counsellors carry their first aid kits on them at all times. Additionally, all training material was fully updated to meet and exceed all COVID-19 preventive measures.
