Guests are encouraged not to bring valuable clothing or possessions. Pioneer Camp is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items.
Our Caring Staff
All year-round site staff have current first aid training with at least a standard level. Barn Staff have a minimum of CHA Level 1. Cabin leaders and other staff are carefully screened according to the standards set by InterVarsity.
All staff (paid & volunteer) need to have a police check (current in the last 3 years) on file. This police check alerts Pioneer Camp to any criminal activity over the past 5 years.
Liability and Occupational Accident Insurance for Volunteer Staff
InterVarsity Pioneer Camp maintains a general liability policy, which includes all volunteers. This means that if a volunteer is brought into a non-criminal lawsuit as a result of their activity on behalf of InterVarsity Pioneer Camp, the policy would respond on their behalf.
InterVarsity Pioneer Camp maintains Occupational Accident Insurance for all volunteers who are participating in duties on or off the premises that are supervised and sponsored by InterVarsity Pioneer Camp. This also includes travelling to and from volunteer duties. The benefits include excess medical, excess dental, family transportation, funeral expense, home/vehicle adaptation, psychological therapy, rehabilitation/retraining, repatriation. The policy also covers injuries sustained from seat belt, felonious assault and activities which cause paralysis. Note: The policy has limits on the various benefits.
Health and Safety
Pioneer Camp does not guarantee a nut-free environment. To reduce the risk of exposure we do not use, serve, or sell peanuts, peanut products, or tree nuts. However, the foods we purchase and serve, or sell in our tuck shops, may contain traces of nut or peanut products.
How can you help protect those with nut allergies?
If you have food containing nuts or nut products when you get to camp, turn them over to Pioneer Camp staff.
