Every summer, parents throughout the Long Island and New York area entrust sleepaway camps with their children for the summer, knowing their children will have friends and memories that will last a lifetime. Today’s camps are adding more and more activities to entice campers, including ziplines water trampolines, bungee activities, and rope courses as well as swimming, canoeing, rock climbing, archery, riflery and team sports.
Accidents and injuries are common at camps, and while some are unavoidable, the camp has a duty to provide a safe environment by providing proper supervision, ensuring activities are age-appropriate, properly training staff in safety instruction and ensuring the camp grounds and equipment are well-maintained.
When the camp does not meet this obligation and a child is injured, they can be held liable.
