Health and safety

Your child’s safety is our top priority. That is why there is at least one instructor for every 10 children and Team Leaders are qualified in first aid, and Advanced Resuscitation. If your child has a pre-existing condition, allergy, or is on prescription medicine, please provide full details when completing the online registration form. If your child’s requirements or medication change once you have completed your registration, please update us immediately.

Medication at camp

Your child should bring enough medication for the duration of the camp. All medication should be in its original packaging and clearly labelled with your child’s name, the dosage and frequency.

Asthma and anaphylaxis

If your child suffers from asthma or anaphylaxis, please provide an asthma management plan or anaphylaxis action plan, which has been prepared by their doctor, at the time of registration. Children with asthma need to bring their own peak flow meters to camp and carry their inhaler with them at all times. Children at risk of anaphylaxis need to bring at least one adrenaline auto injector. All children at risk of food-related anaphylaxis wear a colored

wristband while at camp as an added precaution to assist staff in managing situations where food allergens may be present.

Meals

All lunch and afternoon tea items and drinks are to be provided by parents. To help us promote a safe, nut-free environment, we ask that you:

Do not bring nuts and products containing nuts to the Camp.

Behaviour

So that camp is a fun and safe experience for everybody, we created a participant code of behaviour for kids to follow (see attached)

The code of behaviour will be further explained to your child on arrival at camp. If your child misbehaves, we will discuss the issue with your child and if the problem continues, we will contact you. CHFAC has a zero-tolerance stance on bullying.

Activity safety

Every effort is made to ensure your child’s safety and comfort while at camp. Participation in activities requires kids to listen and follow safety instructions, and failure to follow instructions may result in non-participation. Examples of how safety is incorporated into our programs:

  • Our SunSmart strategy promotes wearing broad-brimmed hats and sunscreen
  • Covered shoes must be worn when participating in all out of water activities

Accidents or emergencies

Centre staff hold first aid accreditation and can administer first aid, if required. If your child requires professional medical assistance, they will be taken to the nearest Medical Centre or hospital, and we will notify you. In case of emergencies, parents can contact the Centre between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday

Participant Code of Behaviour

Dear Parents/Guardians,

CHFAC looks forward to providing an enjoyable and positive multi- sport camp experience for your child. We want to create a respectful and inclusive environment for all participants and ask that camp behaviours and values are discussed with your child prior to attending.

The following information outlines the camp’s behaviour code and values, the type of behaviour that is considered unacceptable at camp and CHFAC’s approach to behaviour management.

By attending the camp, we expect all participants to understand and agree to demonstrate these behaviours and values.

Behaviour Code

  • Campers are responsible for their words and actions
  • Campers should show respect to, and be always inclusive of others
  • Campers are required to follow directions and instructions from staff
  • Campers should communicate and inform staff of any behaviours that are not aligned to this code

Unacceptable Behaviour

  • Putting yourself or others, including staff, in danger
  • Being disrespectful including physical and verbal mistreatment of others
  • Bullying, aggression or violent behaviours including cyber bullying
  • Theft or intended damage to CHFAC property or the personal property of other people.
  • Inappropriate language including swearing or derogatory comments toward others
  • Mobile phones must not be used in any way or place that is disruptive to the Centre’s activities
  • Mobile phones are banned in change rooms and toilets.
  • You must ask for permission from others before they are filmed, photographed or recorded. If a person does not give permission, they are not to be photographed, filmed, or recorded. This includes CHFAC staff.

Behaviour Management

  • Behaviour that is not aligned to this code will be managed by CHFAC staff. Approaches may include:
  • Staff redirection of behaviour
  • Guidance and discussion of appropriate behavioural expectations with your child
  • Exclusion from activities
  • Discussion with parents/guardians by phone
  • Removal of your child from camp

CHFAC strives to establish a positive and encouraging environment where participants feel safe and a valued part of the camp community.
