What precautions are in place for all of the Camp Activities?
Camp CaHiTo provides a number of unique challenging experiences that are a wonderful tool in teaching teamwork and self-confidence.
Oh, and did we mention that they are a TON of fun as well?! That being said, safety is our number one priority for every activity. Our staff are provided with an instruction guide for every major activity. In the activities guide, there are instructions on how to run the activity with safety in mind. In addition, some of our activities, like the climbing wall, archery, and low ropes require a Specialist who has had extra training before camp begins. Here are a few specifics about the training and safety precautions we take for some of these activities:
There is always at least one lifeguard on duty whenever the pool is open. Every lifeguard is Lifeguard and CPR certified through the American Red Cross. In addition, all lifeguards are trained how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (that is kept at the pool).
Campers must pass a swim check upon arrival to the Boy Scouts of America Pool to determine their strength as a swimmer. Swimmers wear a wristband to alert lifeguards on duty that those without them cannot swim well and must remain in shallow areas at all times. All pool water is tested to ensure it is within safe swimming conditions.
