Health + Safety

As a fully accredited member of the BC Camping Association, Camp Douglas maintains the highest standards for safety, leadership, food, water and sanitation:

  • Regular visits and approval by the BC Ministry of Health confirm that our kitchen, washrooms, sleeping areas and site meet with Provincial regulations.
  • Campers’ health, safety and comfort are essential for a memorable camp experience. The First Aid Cabin, our summer infirmary, is well equipped to provide quality care, with the additional support of local hospital and walk-in clinics nearby.  It is an 11 minute drive to St. Mary’s Hospital in Sechelt.
  • An experienced and highly trained first-aid person is always on site and they work closely with staff to ensure camper care, safety and health.
  • Many staff members hold Standard First Aid and CPR certificates. 
  • Waterfront staff hold National Lifeguarding Service certification. As well, there are several staff members who hold Bronze Cross certification.
  • All staff and volunteers undergo police background checks.
