HEALTH, WELLNESS, AND SAFETY
At camp, the well-being of our campers is our top priority. Our year-round camp team, including our medical director and mental health director, will work with you throughout the enrollment process to ensure that Mosh can meet your child’s needs.
Camp Moshava is licensed by the State of Maryland and accredited by the American Camp Association, the leading authority in the promotion of camp safety and quality. That means that we follow hundreds of standards, ranging from sanitation to camper/staff-ratio to quality of programming. On our last accreditation, a day-long, onsite assessment, in 2022, we passed with a 100% score on all standards.
Our level of staff certification in First Aid, CPR, and AED exceeds both state and ACA regulations. At Mosh, the health and safety of campers is everyone’s responsibility: from the counselors, to our kitchen staff, to our onsite nurses; all staff receive this training. Staff with additional certification supervise camp activities such as canoeing, tubing, and swimming.
Our air-conditioned health center, built in 2016, is staffed with two nurses (RNs) at all times to care for the health concerns that come up in regular camp life. They also distribute daily medications prescribed to our campers and attend to any health needs.
If the nurse determines a more indepth evaluation is needed than what they can provide at the camp infirmary, they may contact one of our consulting physicians and/or campers might be sent to see a doctor at the nearby Patient First clinic or Upper Chesapeake Emergency Department (15 minutes away).
Camp Mosh has a medical committee, made up of medical professionals, camp parents, and staff who advise us on all medical matters.
