At CIMI, the safety and well-being of our participants is paramount.
In all of our classes and activities, we provide exceptional teaching and supervision by instructors who have been trained in specific program areas. All children and adults are required to follow safety guidelines for each activity and properly utilize relevant safety equipment.
All of our instructors are trained as Waterfront Lifeguards, which includes CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer, First Aid, and Emergency Oxygen Administration. Staff also utilize two-way radios for constant contact with the office and camp directors.
For school trips, chaperones may utilize our centrally located self-serve First Aid room where they can find basic medical supplies (i.e. adhesive bandages, ice packs) and over-the-counter medication. The attending school chaperones are responsible for administering all prescription and over-the-counter medication. CIMI staff are not permitted to administer any medication.
In the case of illness, medical emergency, or a situation requiring additional assistance, we follow all appropriate EMS procedures. There is a pharmacy, clinic, and hospital in the nearby town of Avalon. For medical emergencies, we contact the local paramedics who will travel to camp to provide the necessary care and arrange transport if needed.
