Staff Training Week

Parents often ask about the security when choosing a camp for their children.

You are probably wondering how we make sure our campers will be safe. We would like to introduce you to our philoshopy:

“SAFETY, QUALITY & FUN”

We endeavor to provide the perfect mix of guardian, friends and teachers to all students, and while we are there to make sure the students are happy, parents can be reassured that nothing comes before student safety.

We are fully aware of the enormous responsibility of taking care of children and are completely focused on their well being. That being said, in case of illness or accident, we are only minutes away from world class professional help.
