Camp Fire River Bend | Camp Tannadoonah

Accreditation, Health, and Safety

The safety of our campers is of utmost importance to the staff at Camp Tannadoonah. We understand how much trust it takes to leave your child in the care of another person and we take your child’s health and well-being seriously. Staff are trained to be observant of food and water intake, cleanliness, and overall personality changes that may signal a discomfort or concern. Staff also build an atmosphere of approachability and sensitivity with their campers so your children can practice articulating their needs and asking for help.

All of our seasonal camp staff attend a two-week long staff training prior to the arrival of campers at camp. During that training, we go over emergency procedures, policies, and expectations. Staff role-play and practice various situations that they might encounter during the summer.

Camp Tannadoonah is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) and licensed by the State of Michigan. In order to maintain our licensing and accreditation, we must comply with all of the guidelines and regulations laid out by the ACA and the State. We have regular inspections conducted by our Michigan camp licensing consultant, the Cass County Health Department, the fire Marshall, and ACA visitors.
