Our first priority at Island Lake is the health and safety of our campers and staff and this is a responsibility we take very seriously.
Our infirmary is staffed with at least five nurses and a physician and is well stocked with what we need for almost any contingency. The nurses are all Registered Nurses or Nurse Practitioners and they and our physicians are all licensed in Pennsylvania.
Our staff goes through eight days of orientation and much of that is centered on safety and emergency procedures. Additionally, many of our staff members go through up to a week of additional training in their activities prior to orientation. The circus, pioneering, mountain biking, and horseback staff all arrive early for this. Each of our waterfront staff members goes through the American Red Cross Life Guard Training course at camp even if they are already certified.
In summary, we do everything in our power to provide a safe and healthy camp experience at Island Lake.
