Safety & Risk Management

Field camp is inherently dangerous and the staff takes safety very seriously. As a result our efforts, the camp has maintained an excellent safety record during its 49 year history. As part of our ongoing efforts to maintain this record, we are constantly enhancing the way we prepare, administer, and execute field camp activities.

The following pages outline common environmental, health, and safety hazards. These pages also discuss the safety precautions and strategies needed to minimize risk to yourself and others. It is important for you to evaluate the stated risks with regard to your own personal health and safety, request reasonable modifications (“accommodations”) to course delivery, and modify your participation or attendance accordingly.
