Your Child’s Safety is the Top Priority for Team Frogbridge
When it comes to choosing the right camp for your child, safety comes first. With that in mind, I wanted to talk about our incredible staff at Frogbridge and to share our team members‘ qualifications and the training they go through to ensure your child’s safety and comfort. Our team has the enthusiasm, character and experience needed to make Frogbridge the ideal place for each camper.
Transportation Team Member Background Checks
A major factor in making Frogbridge the premier day camp in Monmouth County is our safe, air-conditioned transportation. We offer door-to-door busing for an additional fee and “Central Express” routes from many points in Monmouth, Ocean, Mercer and Middlesex Counties at no extra cost. Our drivers learn their routes in advance and introduce themselves to you and your children to answer any questions or concerns you might have.
In addition, each of our transportation team members must pass an extensive background check, including:
Certification of passing a random drug test.
An up-to-date CDL license with no points or previous violations.
Fingerprinting from their current employer or school district.
Proof of three years experience in child transportation.
Specialized Training For Aquatic Activities
Each swim instructor is trained to give your child careful, effective swimming lessons under American Red Cross guidelines. Instructors are required to take an online safety training course, so they know how to maintain a comfortable and safe swimming environment, how to prevent accidents and injuries and how to respond to injured swimmers. After that, they come to Frogbridge to take an in-water skills verification assessment, along with our lifeguards.
Specialized Training for Division Leaders & Counselors
We hire experienced teachers licensed by the State of New Jersey to be our division leaders and we look to hire counselors studying elementary education to work alongside those teachers. Our Counselors-In-Training (C.I.T.) also work alongside licensed teachers. This provides a great learning experience for those looking to further their Frogbridge careers and ensures having multiple team members your children can turn to whenever they feel the need.
Specialized Training for Medical Team Members
Our infirmary is just like your child’s nurses office at school. Both of our nurses, referred to by many of our campers as “camp moms,” are experienced, registered nurses who create a comfortable environment, in which children are well cared for. They are trained to handle numerous situations and to ensure that your children will get the care they need to recover and return to the day’s activities.
In addition to our infirmary, many of our team members serve as E.M.T.’s within their communities and have received CPR and First Aid Training.
As a “nut aware” facility, we can assure that no nuts are anywhere in our kitchens, so that those children with nut allergies can avoid any possible reaction-causing contact.
Energy, Enthusiasm & Personality
We rely on our team members to celebrate the excitement of the Frogbridge experience with each camper. Team members are selected for their enthusiasm toward their respective roles and to provide a great experience for each camper. Our goals for our campers are for them to grow as people, to form positive relationships and to have a positive role models, while having fun, memorable summers.
We want you and your campers to know that they can turn to our team members with any questions or concerns, so their time at Frogbridge is comfortable and safe.
