Food, Health & Safety

Rockmont adheres to the very highest of health and safety standards for summer camps. Our boys camp has been accredited by the American Camp Association since 1961, confirming that we comply with standards formulated to promote safe and professional practices in all phases of camp operation including the site, health and safety, food service, staff and program.

Camper/Staff Interactions

Our staff understands the position of trust that they have been placed in. We are clear that accountability in our appropriate interactions with campers is paramount. Every employee, including the Directors, understands that they are to strictly avoid situations that would leave them alone with a single camper in a non-public area. This is for their sake in maintaining professional integrity and for the security of the campers. Wonderful, significant relationships are formed at camp, and we are clear with staff as to what is appropriate in respecting campers and honoring their space and development.

Health Center

The Health Center is staffed by at least four resident Registered Nurses, and open twenty-four hours a day. The camp is located only two miles from a private medical center, and fifteen miles from Asheville’s excellent medical facilities. Our campers’ health and safety are of the greatest importance to us. Rest assured that every sensible precaution is taken by the members of our staff.
