At Camp Orr High Adventure Base, each camper's health and safety is our primary concern.
Our health and safety standards in all areas are designed to meet or exceed the requirements of the National Camp Accreditation Program (NCAP) mandated by the Boy Scouts of America as well as those mandated by the State of Arkansas.
Each camp session finds a certified medical staff in place in accordance with Boy Scouts of America's NCAP standards. Our Council Physician is available 24/7 in the event of a more serious accident or injury. Camp Orr medical staff will dispense daily medications, treat minor illnesses and injuries and manage the Camp's health center.
In addition to our full medical staff on duty each session, Camp Orr goes to great lengths to ensure that all of its staff is properly trained in necessary areas. We maintain or exceed the mandatory number of staff required to be certified in CPR/AED and First Aid. In addition, all lifeguards and aquatics staff are mandated to become certified.
If you have questions regarding our Health or Safety programs, or if you are interested in medical staff opportunities at Camp Orr, please contact Shelby Nuckolls at firstname.lastname@example.org
