St. Vincent de Paul Camp, est. 1971
A Summer of Fun, a Lifetime of Memories!
Here at Camp Vincent, your child’s health and safety always come first. We not only have a First Aider living on site, but ALL of our staff are trained in First Aid and CPR! If your child has medication, dietary needs, allergies, health concerns, or pre-existing injuries, we can guarantee that your child is in good hands. By having our First Aider on site, they are always accessible and prepared to handle any situation and concern your child may have. If your child happens to injure themselves while in our care, although we always aim for proactive supervision and preparation, our First Aider room and all buildings are equipped with First Aid kits, and each cabin carries a First Aid kit while travelling to each activity your child will go to. Our First Aid Center is fully equipped with First Aid supplies, over the counter medication and ice packs. Proper paperwork is done when a child’s medication is received and any time a child comes into the First Aid Center. Our documentation procedure is to keep every child’s visit logged with exactly what was taken, or First Aid that was applied so that parents can be informed in detail as to what your child needed and received the care they needed. Communication with our parents is very important to us, and in a case of a concern with your child, you will be called and informed of the situation.
When it comes to safety at Camp Vincent, we are always revising, updating, and implementing safety policies and procedures. Your child’s safety is very important to us. We train all of our staff in our yearly revised safety procedures, including our crisis team policy and procedure. All of our activities that we participate in at Camp Vincent are carefully thought about and prepared to meet all safety concerns. On top of all of our staff being trained in First Aid and CPR, we always have at least 2 lifeguards who have their N.L.S. Our lifeguards are trained to safely run our canoeing program and our swimming program. Although we will always in encourage our campers to try new things that may be a little outside of their comfort zone, we will never force them to participate in an activity that they feel uncomfortable with.
Camp Vincent is committed to the following all applicable COVID-19 protocols as outlined by the Ministry of Health in their summer camp guidance. This guidance will be updated by the province closer to the start of the summer and we will share with you how the protocols will look at Camp Vincent once the revised guidance is released.
