Health & Safety

Counsellor Training Ensuring Safety

Prior to the start of camp, Supercamp staff receives at least 40 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.

For more information on our safety procedures, do not hesitate to contact us.

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 an Authorization to Administer Medication form available here as well as indicate it on the camper’s health record. The medication will be given to one of our Coordinators, 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 a 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.
