Become "CampSafe" Ready

Did You Know?

1 in 4 girls and 1 in 20 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18 years old. These figures are based on reported cases only. The actual number is much higher. Most children never report. 

In the past 25 years, more than 575 cases of sexual abuse have been reported at camps in North America.

CampSafe training was created by KidSafe Foundation, a leading non-profit in the field of sexual abuse prevention, along with input from veteran camp directors. 

 To Become a CampSafe Camp: 

First - The camp director must take the CampSafe Online Training Course for Directors

Next - The director instructs camp staff and volunteers to take the CampSafe Interactive eLearn Course

Finally - Pat yourselves on the back! Your camp will now be awarded official CampSafe Trained Certification
