Our staff members are carefully selected after they have been thoroughly researched and are confirmed to be fit for our program.
Every staff member must be over the age of 21 in order to qualify as an adult leader of our venturing crew. In addition, in order to be part of our crew/camp, each staff member must complete the venturing youth protection training under the guide lines of the Boy Scouts of America. This ensures that every adult member of our program is trained to be aware of misbehavior, and also to know how to conduct themselves properly. There are guidelines we are required to follow in order to qualify as a Boy Scouts crew and we take careful steps to ensure everyone’s physical, mental and emotional safety.
In addition, every staff member is trained in first aid and CPR, and some years we require all our staff to be trained in wilderness first aid, depending on the terrain. Our staff members also spend a week of training in the back country before the program begins to familiarize themselves with different scenarios that can happen in the particular environment they will be spending their time.When the summer program begins, the staff and campers alike are taught basic outdoor emergency safety skills, such as how to carry out an injured team member and what to do in an emergency situation. This is to ensure that everyone who joins our program is familiar with the back country and how to respond in an emergency if needed.
