Health & Safety

COVID-19 

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 by next 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.

Supervision and Ratios

To maintain safety and encourage team building within the groups, we follow the ratios imposed by the ACQ:

Age groups Ratio at camp Ratios at the pool
5 & 6 yrs 10 kids per camp counsellor 6 kids per camp counsellor
7 & 8 yrs 12 kids per camp counsellor 7 kids per camp counsellor
9 & 10 yrs 14 kids per camp counsellor 10 kids per camp counsellor
11 & 12 yrs 14 kids per camp counsellor 10 kids per camp counsellor
13 to 15 yrs 15 kids per camp counsellor 12 kids per camp counsellor

*Ratios always match or are better than Public Heath recommendations.

Health and Allergies

If your child has a severe allergy, you must provide two EpiPens® whenever your child is at camp. One that your child will keep on him or her. Another that is kept on the counsellor at all times. Parents must indicate said allergy on the camper’s health record, when registering through Amilia. We advise parents to personally deliver the EpiPen®, identified with the name of the child, to the child’s counsellor on the first morning their child attends the camp.

If your child needs to take medication during the day, you must fill out a Authorization to Administer Medication form available here as well as indicate it on the camper’s health record. The medication will be given to the Health and Safety Coordinator, and administered to your child at the appropriate time(s).

No child with symptoms of contagious condition/illness (fever, significant stomach ache, nausea, lice, coughing, loss of sense of taste/smell, etc.) will be admitted to camp. If lice is discovered on your child or any symptom of contagious condition arises while at camp, you will be contacted to pick up your child from camp immediately.

 

WARNING: Allergies

As some children at camp have life threatening allergies, we ask for your cooperation in ensuring your child’s packed lunches are 100% nut-free, peanut-free and sesame-free.
