Monarch Camps has an emphasis on sports, love for the outdoors, and fun activities. Monarch Camps is NOT SAFE, we do activities that have risk, such as rock climbing, gymnastics, dodge ball, crossing the street, and field trips. We could not have been around since 1971, if we were not good at reducing risk. We train staff to identify the risks, then assess on how to reduce risk.
Camp is a place to try new things, win, lose, and be exposed to new experiences. We are not to protect campers from possible incidents, but to instruct and teach techniques of how to be safer.
We are a camp that is not for helicopter parents, but parents that want their children to gain confidence in themselves through exposure.
We understand we are not for all families and we do NOT accommodate for families that want special treatment. We believe in teaching fairness and sportsmanship, which also applies to parents.
