Health & Safety

Protecting the health

and wellness of

CELP participants

is a priority

of our program


All CELP Staff are certified Red Cross Life Guards and trained in First Aid/CPR

CELP Staff carry:

  • a radio with them at all times to stay connected to the CELP Office and local Emergency Services 

  • a first aid kit when leaving camp boundaries

CELP Staff partake in a lengthy and robust training

and receive on-going role development throughout the season to provide safe, engaging, and organized activities for students. 

We emphasize safety and wellness above all else. 


  • Hand sanitizer stations located in the dining hall and water taps

  • Cabins are cleaned and disinfected prior to each use

  • Restrooms and showers are cleaned and disinfected routinely

  • Disinfect wetsuits, masks, and snorkels thoroughly after each use

  • We enforce our thorough Dining Hall Procedures to limit cross contamination

  • Water bottles are given to encourage proper hydration


  • All CELP staff are trained in American Red Cross Basic First Aid

  • We require health forms from all CELP participants and proactively plan for any medical or health needs

  • Chaperones hold and administer all student medication brought on island

  • We have over the counter medicine available with chaperone request and administration

  • We have an infirmary if further medical care or isolation is needed

  • In case of an emergency, we have access to Emergency Medical Services through the Baywatch unit stationed at Two Harbors, which is about fifteen minutes away by boat. We also have the capability to airlift a severely ill and/or injured child out of camp via helicopter.

Covid-19 Precautions & Protocols

We do not require proof of testing prior to arrival to CELP.  We highly recommend using an at-home rapid antigen test the day before or day of camp attendance.  Guests will be tested for COVID-19 if they have signs or symptoms of illness.  Any guest testing positive for COVID-19 will need to return home. Current guidance from the LA County Department of Public Health requires a five-day isolation period, which we are not able to support at camp.
