Safety Is our priority
At Camp War Eagle, each child's health and safety is our primary concern. Our safety standards are designed to meet or exceed the requirements of the American Camp Association, with the underlying desire to treat each camper as if they were our own.
Each Overnight Camp session finds a full medical staff in place, usually consisting of at least 3 registered nurses and a licensed physician onsite throughout the session. Physicians usually take calls as needed to treat typical camp maladies. In addition, the camp doctor always remains on call in the event of a more serious accident or injury. War Eagle nurses dispense daily medications, treat minor illnesses and injuries and manage the Camp War Eagle Health Center.
In addition to our full medical staff on duty each session, Camp War Eagle goes to great lengths to ensure that all of its staff is properly trained in necessary areas. All summer staff is required to attend a 10-day orientation session during which everyone is certified in CPR and First Aid. In addition, all lifeguards are certified, as well as instructors in areas such as ropes course, riflery, archery, horsemanship, etc.

STAFF RECRUITING & TRAINING
It is Camp War Eagle’s goal to create a safe and secure environment for your child. Camp War Eagle is highly selective and carefully screens each and every staff member during the application and interview process. References for every applicant are required to be submitted, and all references are interviewed with specific questions, and criminal background checks are conducted each year on each new summer staff member. In addition, every staff member must complete a sexual abuse prevention course prior to arriving at Camp War Eagle, and then is thoroughly trained onsite in the areas of camper safety and well-being.
