IS CAMP SAFE FOR MY CHILD?

A Safe and Fun Environment

 

Designed with your child in mind!
 
As a concerned parent, grandparent, or guardian it is understandable to ask, “Is camp a safe place to send my child?” As Program Director at Forest Springs, I want you to know that we take that concern very seriously.
 
We care deeply about the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of kids. Let me share with you how we make Forest Springs a safe place to bring your child for a week of camp.
 
Staff with the highest spiritual integrity…
 
Hiring for all staff begins with prayer…lots of it. We believe that the Lord will guide and direct who He wants to bring to camp. Applicants complete an application that requires honest, detailed responses regarding their testimony, lifestyle, and convictions. Each segment requires staff to support their responses Biblically. Next, each personal reference is contacted for information regarding the applicant’s skills, integrity, and character. Pending a positive interview, a full, certified criminal background check is conducted on every applicant before he/she is hired and given the responsibility to supervise your child. Through this process I know that we are getting staff members who are honorable, have a heart to serve the Lord, their campers, and share the love of Christ with those campers.
 
Commitment against bullying…
 
Please know that because we desire that each camper have an enjoyable experience at camp, bullying is not tolerated. We hope you would see WLBC as a safe and fun environment where campers can experience deeper aspects of God and His creation. We look forward to meeting your child this summer. Please call with any questions you may have.
