Camp SafetyWe take pride in our operation, and the professional way in which we have run our programs for over 25 years. Safety is a priority in our programming. We provide campers with unique experiences under the careful watch of our trained counselor and medical staff.
Is Camp accredited?
Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times® is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) and recognized for meeting and/or exceeding over 300 camp industry standards in safety, staff screening & training, healthcare and operations.
Who watches my kids at the pool?
An American Red Cross certified lifeguard watches over our campers while they swim. Our lifeguards are trained in the emergency and rescue procedures specific to our Camp pool. In addition, regular emergency procedure drills are practiced and documented by our Camp Director. In addition to our lifeguard, all of our cabin counselors are trained in how to assist the lifeguard in case of an emergency.
Is the horseback riding safe?
We rent a line of horses that is used to working with our campers. Our horseback riding staff meets with the Camp Doctor and Camp Nurse to review every child’s ability and challenges. Our trained and experienced Head Wrangler matches each rider with each horse to ensure a stable, safe and fun ride for all!
How does my child get to Camp?
To best serve our campers and their families, we offer FREE round-trip bus transportation from several Southland locations. We use luxury charter busses with trained and certified drivers, air conditioning and on-board bathrooms. Each bus is supervised by our Camp Staff, with one staff member serving as the Bus Leader. Each Bus Leader has emergency supplies, contact information and training in emergency procedures to ensure the safest possible trip for your child’s initial experience of their Camp session.
Can I call my camper while at Camp?
One of our goals at Camp is to help campers develop and experience a sense of independence. To this end, we discourage campers from calling home. Pay phones are not available to campers at the site, and due to our mountain location, cell phone service is not available. Therefore, we would appreciate you speaking with your child before Camp, encouraging them to write letters home and to expect letters from you.
If there is an emergency and you should need to speak with the Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times® Staff, we can be contacted on site at (951) 659-4609.
