Winter Safety

Safe Fun is one of our core values at Double H, and the top priority when it comes to programming. Safety is a major factor in childhood; it’s no different at camp. Our staff and volunteers are trained with the tools required to provide the utmost quality of care for our campers and families. We provide the highest standards of excellence and quality assurance in all areas, so that the intricacies of medical illness do not diminish the excitement and wonder of having limitless fun.

During the Adaptive Winter Sports Program

  • Campers are paired with one or more trained instructors for lessons, depending on their individual needs.
  • An onsite medical team of nurses and ski patrol are available during lessons to provide first-aid and emergency care.
  • AWSP Volunteers fulfill training requirements before lessons begin in topics such as adaptive ski and snowboarding equipment, inclusive programming, and child behavior techniques.

Infection Control Precautions

  • We closely follow guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), New York State (NYS), our local Department of Health (DOH) and the American Camping Association (ACA).
  • Campers, volunteers, and staff are vaccinated in accordance with CDC recommendations, including the seasonal flu shot and COVID-19.
  • Campers, volunteers, and staff are asked to screen for symptoms before, during, and after lessons.
  • Campers and parent/guardians are given a private room and accessible bathroom in the Raccoon Cabin to use throughout the day.
