Off-Season Preparation: Test, Mark & Protect Policies
Test, Mark and Protect policies are the best way to protect non-swimmers in your water. They also set clear expectations for campers, staff and parents.

In a recent article for American Camp Association, we discuss how your camp can plan now to overcome challenges in implementing this policy to keep every camper safe in the water.
Staff Activity: Applying Your Code of Conduct

Holding your staff accountable to that code of conduct, and consistently having dialogue to reinforce the rules and expectations is key to building a strong culture of safety.
