Camp Table Rock Safety Statement

 

 

There is no question that Camp Table Rock places camper safety as a top priority in all we do. While camp is full of fun activities that obviously come with some risk, it is our commitment that we conduct these activities with the highest reasonable safety standards possible. Every staff member employed by Camp Table Rock is screened with an extensive background check and is trained annually in first aid, CPR, and AED as well as in all of our water safety and boat safety procedures. We know that getting bumps and bruises is pretty much a normal part of an active child’s life, but it is the desire of Camp Table Rock to provide activities that students find fun, and yet, are safe. It is our desire to protect every student who attends Camp Table Rock from any type of injury whether it is physical or emotional. If you would like more information please feel free to contact our director, Rick Pearson, at rick@camptablerock.com or at 816-262-6011.
