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.
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.
