    Important questions for parents

    • What steps does the camp take to maximize children’s safety? This is the highest priority for camp owners, directors and staff. For both day and overnight summer camps in Alberta, parents should expect first-aid trained staff and high staff-to-camper ratios (higher than a school environment). Click here for more on staff training and camp safety.
    • How are camp staff trained? How is discipline handled in the camp? Some camps have counselors trained in restorative justice or in TRACKS for camps? Find out if they have had to deal with difficult or disruptive kids or teens in the past, and how they have dealt with those problems.
    • How much of the day is structured, how much is free-play?
    • What is the ratio of leaders and counselors to kids and teens? You may also want to find out how campers are divided into groups and who your child(ren)’s group leader will be. 
    • What will my child gain by attending your camp? What are they expected to bring and what will they be taking home?

    That’s a brief overview.

    Regulation of summer camps in Alberta

    The Alberta Camping Association (ACA) is a provincial organization representing organized summer and youth camps in Alberta.  Each member camp goes through the Standards and Accreditation program that includes a formal accreditation visit once every three years that covers all aspects of camp operations. Parents should be aware that camps are not required to be a part of ACA, and many non-member camps also offer excellent safe and well-run programs that meet or exceed standards.
