Safety, Wellness & Accreditations

Health and Safety

Parents need to know that their kids are going to a safe place. ACA Accreditation ensures that we’ve addressed the safety aspects of every part of camp. Registered nurses are on site 24/7 to care for the daily needs of our campers, and we are fully prepared for any emergencies. Pali Mountain is a secure facility with a front gate that requires a code or office approval to enter. Learn more about everything we do to keep your kids safe while they are entrusted to our care.

Emergency Care

While we do everything in our power to ensure our campers are as safe as they can possibly be, we are fully prepared in the unlikely event of an emergency. A designated doctor is on call in the local emergency room and several other hospitals with emergency medical services are only a short drive away.

  • Fire, Police, EMT – 3 miles away
  • Mountains Community Hospital – 7 miles away
  • Urgent Care – 12 miles away
  • Staff carry radios 24/7.

Wellness Center

Our wellness center is a warm and friendly infirmary staffed 24/7 by licensed nurses. There are comfortable beds and couches for kids who may not be feeling their best. We carry a full supply of basic over-the-counter medications (cough medicine, Pepto Bismol, cough drops) and healthcare products like sunscreen and chapstick – all free for any kids who need them, with nurse and parent approval. Our nurses are always on site to care for your child’s daily health needs and deal with emergencies. They administer all medication and store it safely in the wellness center.

Accreditations

Caring for your child is a responsibility Pali Adventures takes very seriously. The American Camp Association (ACA) offers a comprehensive camp-focused accreditation that is a parent’s best evidence of a camp’s commitment to health and safety. ACA accreditation means that we care enough about your child’s well being to voluntarily undergo a thorough review of our operation, verifying that we have complied with 250+ standards for health, safety, and program quality. Accreditation standards cover all aspects of camp operation such as food service, healthcare, emergency procedures, transportation, management, waterfront activities, safety equipment, staff qualifications and training. We choose to be accredited so that we can provide your child with the safest camp environment possible.
