Health & Safety
Medications will be collected by camp staff during the camper’s arrival to ROYAL. Only camp staff will handle any necessary medication distribution for the camper during the week. Camp staff will work with the camper to make sure any emergency medications are administered if needed. All medications and administration instructions will need to be placed in a resealable plastic bag that is clearly labeled with the camper’s full name. Any use of OTC medications will need to be consented by the guardian.
Equipped, On-Site Medical Room
We have an on-site medical room dedicated to routinely checking for any signs of illness, and we are prepared to handle any possible need for response if a camper or staff member’s health becomes symptomatic.
CPR & First Aid Trained Staff
All of our full-time ROYAL staff on Camp grounds are certified in CPR and First Aid.
Quick-Access Hospitals & Clinics
The Plateau Medical Center & Emergency Room are 10 minutes from Camp.
Clean hands are our first line of defense against the spread of germs, so all staff and campers wash their hands before every meal. Hand sanitizer stations are also available across campus. Additionally, we encourage good hygiene for all campers by programming daily shower times into our overnight camp schedules.
Our staff take strict measures to ensure that our campers are in a healthy and safe environment during meals and rest times. All tables are disinfected before and after every meal, as well as all bunks are wiped with antibacterial/antiviral wipes between occupants.
Intensive Health & Wellness Orientation During Staff Training
Our staff has been taught how to recognize signs and symptoms of communicable disease and other common illnesses. When appropriate, campers will be forwarded to a Health Center for follow up with a medical professional.
Safety is our top priority at ROYAL. While action sports always have an edge of risk involved, there are several ways we work to make our camp activities as safe as possible:
Helmets are required for all riders while on wheels. Whether you’re shredding on the parks or simply going from point A to point B on your gear, helmets must be worn!
Park etiquette and camp rules are reviewed on the first day of camp before any free riding is allowed, and is upheld throughout the week by our supervising staff.
Staff are strategically placed at all areas during free time to watch the area, making sure campers are following park etiquette and riding safely for themselves and others. More advanced areas such as the resi, airbag and forest have extra eyes and require a clearance from our trained coaches before campers can participate. This supervision is also used to catch any wear and tear that can occur on our parks, trails and ramps as they are ridden throughout the summer.
A camp nurse is on property at all times. This professional is available to answer any call over the walkie (which every staff person holds) in a matter of minutes. They will evaluate the camper for injuries, paying special attention to head, neck and back injuries. Any injury requiring more care than a band aid will be referred immediately to a medical facility nearby for further evaluation, with parents being contacted upon the decision. We ask for your camper’s insurance and medical history during registration for cases such as this.
