Most camp counselors and recreation leaders are wonderful people who are completely dedicated to the well being of the children in their care. Unfortunately, a very few have bad intentions and can cause tremendous harm.

To help keep your kids safe when they are away from you, we encourage you to take a few minutes to watch this Kidpower parent-education video and learn:

  • A key question to ask and how to assess the answer from a summer camp or recreational program;
  • How to teach and role play boundary setting skills with kids to help them stop unwanted touch, teasing or affection;
  • How to teach kids to be persistent in getting help from other adults; and
  • What to do if a child tells you about a problem or you feel uncomfortable yourself.
In addition, we recommend that you check to be sure that the programs where you send your children:
