CampSafe: Online Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training for Staff

CampSafe is an innovative, interactive eLearn training empowering camp staff with awareness and knowledge about child sexual abuse prevention. Preparing staff before they arrive to camp on this sensitive topic ensures everyone has the same baseline knowledge of sexual abuse prevention, response and reporting. All staff participate in a 35 minute pre-camp eLearn training. The CampSafe Director’s portion includes screening protocol of staff, policy and procedures, creating a Child Protection Team, more in-depth knowledge of sexual abuse prevention, and an in-person training to be implemented the week before camp. This open communication about sexual abuse prevention, the increased confidence of all staff to understand how to manage their own behavior/boundaries as well as how to respond if they have any concerns, increases the professionalism and standards of your camp. CampSafe is created by KidSafe Foundation, the leader in sexual abuse prevention education.
