Safety policy

We comply with the safety policy of our fiscal sponsor, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto, including mandatory safety training for all our volunteer staff (junior counselors and up), and criminal background checks for all staff over age 18. You can read their complete safety policy online here.

In addition, we adhere to the following safety policies (following the camping policies of Navigators USA):

  • Boys and girls are in separate tents on camping trips. (For genderfluid children, we can provide separate tents as desired.)
  • Adults do not sleep in the same tent as legal minors. Junior counselors do not sleep in the same tent as campers.
