Health and Safety
Throughout a camper’s stay at Mi-A-Kon-Da, they should feel safe knowing that medical support is available for them 24/7. A registered nurse, known as “Patch,” is available at all times at the camp Health Centre. Any required medications that campers bring with them will be administered and supervised by the camp nurse. They ensure that the health needs of every child are met throughout their stay. The West Parry Sound Health Centre, located within 40 minutes of the camp, provides medical support in the event that a visit is required. We also have a Camp Doctor on call in Parry Sound.
The majority of our staff members are certified in Standard First Aid and all staff are equipped with the knowledge for emergency procedures in order to effectively handle any situation related to camp. Swim staff have NLS (National Lifeguard) and Swimming Instructor qualifications as well as Standard First Aid training. All activities are supervised by qualified and trained staff.
Mi-A-Kon-Da consistently meets and exceeds the health standards as established by the Ontario Camps Association, as well as those set through the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change.
The water supply used by the camp is pumped daily from Lake Wah Wash Kesh, which has been proven to be an incredibly clean lake. All water that is drawn from the lake is tested and goes through a filtration and chlorination process that consistently meets or exceeds all of the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Environment standards.
