Safety & Security
Camper safety is our number one priority, and we are committed to keeping Camp Riverbend as safe and secure as possible!
We exceed all standards of the New Jersey Youth Camp Safety Act, and through the American Camp Association we keep current with the newest developments in camp safety and operations. We undergo rigorous annual inspections by local and state officials who evaluate every aspect of Camp Riverbend including sanitation, transportation, food safety, staff qualifications, fire prevention and medical record keeping.

In 2020 and 2021, parent visits were not allowed as a COVID precaution. As we get closer to the 2022 season, we will update our visiting policy.
Our security staff at the camp entrance checks all visitors as they arrive and as they leave.
Our Camp Nurse
Our on-site camp nurse treats minor injuries that occur during the day, such as bug bites and scrapes.
A camper who feels sick or is injured will first go to the Nurse’s office to be evaluated. In case of serious illness or injury, the nurse will contact the child’s parents to pick the child up. Otherwise, the nurse will treat the child with over-the-counter, or prescription medications that have been authorized by the parents. Our camp doctor is on call.
