About Our Camp Staff
Many of our summer camp staff members were once campers themselves. Every staff member is over the age of eighteen and is certified in First Aid & CPR. After successfully completing a very selective application process, accepted BCH Camp counselors complete two weeks of intense staff training before campers arrive. Safety is of the utmost importance for BCH Camp and our staff are well trained in maintaining proper ratios, handling difficult behavior, providing support to campers and conducting emergency protocols and procedures.
BCH Camp is American Camp Association (ACA) accredited. ACA accreditation means we undergo a thorough (over 250 standards) review of our operation – from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. ACA collaborates with experts from The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross and other youth service agencies to ensure that our current practices reflect the most up-to-date research based standards in camp operation. Every camper’s safety and well-being is our chief concern.
