Natural Hazards/Nuisances

Camp Kawartha’s number one priority is keeping students, teachers and all visitors safe, healthy and happy.  We do our utmost to reduce and manage risks.  However, encountering some measure of risk is an inevitable part of going outside.

Our goal in providing the information below is to inform and educate our clients (aka you!) about specific natural hazards (e.g. poison ivy, ticks) and nuisances (e.g.  head lice, bed bugs), as well as suggested remedial actions post visit (e.g. washing clothing & bedding, checking for skin reactions). Camp Kawartha has been working with Public Health, the Ontario Camps Association and other camps to develop the most up to date policies and procedures that deal with these natural hazards/nuisances. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have.
