At Copper Cannon Camp, the safety of your children always has been and always will remain our first priority. There are many reasons you can count on Copper Cannon to be a safe, healthy and educational place for your child.
The American Camping Association has a strict and extensive set of guidelines for camp health and safety. Copper Cannon Camp proudly continues to be an ACA-accredited camp that helps set the standard for program quality and safety.
Copper Cannon Camp maintains an incredible 1:3 staff to camper ratio. We ensure our campers get individual attention and are also properly supervised at all times. That being said, potential campers need to be able to function in a group setting. Our staff are not trained to provide 1:1 supervision of children.
All staff members go through an extensive screening process including a background and criminal record check. This process ensures only the highest-quality staff and counselors are selected to be a part of Copper Cannon Camp. All of our staff are First Aid and CPR certified. Once hired, our staff go through an intensive 10-day training course before camp begins to ensure that camp will operate at our expected standards.
A large part of our program is encouraging healthy eating habits at meal times. All meals have fruits, vegetables and a salad bar. Meals are created with both quality and nutrition in mind, so you can be sure that your child is getting proper nutrition for the week they are at camp.
Proper hydration and sunscreen application are always a big deal in the summer, but even more so during the summer. We ensure that every camper has a water bottle with them at all times so they can stay hydrated. There are various areas around camp where campers can refill their water bottles. We teach our campers about the process of dehydration and how to avoid it. We also teach our campers how to be “Sun Smart”, which means wearing plenty of sunscreen, wearing hats and sunglasses, and seeking shade when necessary. Camp has plenty of misting station, water stations and our river and pond to stay cool.
You will be notified immediately if there is ever an emergency at camp involving your child.. Our first attempt is by phone and the second is by email. Therefore, it is imperative that parents and guardians provide us with up-to-date contact information. If there is ever a need to evacuate the entire camp, we will take refuge at the nearby Littleton Elks Lodge. Because we are a smaller camp, an emergency event such as an evacuation will be a smooth and quick process. Ambulance and paramedic services are less than three miles away in the rare occurrence of a medical emergency.
If your child is sick or has been sick before coming to camp or has had any health issues recently before attending camp, please let us know. We can determine the best course of action to keep your child and the other campers healthy and safe. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (603) 823-8107.
