Our top priority remains providing safe surroundings within the context of an active summer camp. Our caretaker and staff work hard to ensure our facilities are well maintained and that campers are aware of all safety rules and procedures. Furthermore, campers are never left unattended and are under the supervision of a senior counselor in cabins and activities day and night. We are proud to maintain a 6:1 camper-to-counselor ratio throughout the summer.
Camp Nubar is the only Armenian summer camp to be accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), a national organization that identifies camps which offer a solid foundation of health, safety and program quality. The ACA standards program is the result of collaboration and review by experts from many fields, including child development, aquatics, risk management and health care professionals, just to name a few. Accreditation is a distinction that only one in every four camps seeks and earns. To earn accreditation, Camp Nubar complies with up to 300 health, safety and quality standards, and the ACA has reviewed every facet of our operation. We voluntarily invest in accreditation because the children we serve deserve our best.
Our fully-stocked infirmary is run by a Certified Health Director 24 hours a day. We also ensure that our Waterfront staff members as well as many of our counselors obtain their First Aid and CPR Lifesaving certification each year. Camp Nubar has access to local doctors and hospitals at all times with the closest facility only twelve miles away in the town of Delhi, NY.
All camper medication (prescription and over-the-counter) must be given to the Health Director upon check in at camp. Please make sure to pack your child’s medication somewhere easily accessible. Medication is prohibited in the cabins and must be kept in the infirmary at all times. We require all known prescriptions to be filled prior to arrival with adequate supply for the duration of the camper’s stay.
If your child requires medical attention from a doctor or hospital, our team will make necessary arrangements. Parents are responsible for the cost of any medical care and medications incurred.
Should your camper test positive for COVID-19 during his/her stay at camp, we will contact you or your emergency contact to inform you. Your child will be placed in quarantine and will have to be picked up within 24-hours with no exceptions. Campers will be allowed back to camp after 5 days, provided he/she is symptom-free.
As always, campers will not be permitted to participate in camp without the prior submission of all required health forms, including immunization records, doctor forms and proof of health insurance.NYS Dept of Health Disclosure
