Risks at Camp

Camp Don Lee is set in a semi-rustic setting where campers get to experience creation in the out-of-doors through the majority of the activities we offer.  There is inherent risk in participating in activities that may include but are not limited to kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing, swimming, archery, team building on the challenge course, cooking a meal in the woods, arts and crafts, playing games outside, digging for fossils, learning about herpetology, and outdoor field games .

Our staff are trained to help your camper take safe risks like learning new skills, doing activities outside of their typical comfort zone, and thriving in a natural setting.

Campers can expect to be in the sun, come in contact with insects, and be at camp during a variety of weather conditions.

Don Lee abides by standards set out by a national governing body, the American Camp Association, to adhere to standards of procedure for all of our activities.

Marine science campers, adventure campers, two week campers, three week campers and some one week campers will all spend at least one night off-site on a trip. If campers are going anywhere that might include swimming without a life jacket, a staff with a current Lifeguard certification will be present.  On two-night or three-night trips as well as Coast Runners, there will be a staff member with a current Wilderness First Aid certification.

All staff are certified in basic First-Aid and CPR for children and adults.
