A Drug Free Camp APP, powered by Norton Medical Industries, was created to meet the needs of an effective drug use deterrence program among summer camps. When a child is dropped off at a camp, away from his or her parents, the child’s safety, well-being, and life becomes the camp’s responsibility. Because camps become the custodians of the children under their charge, parents are counting on the counselors and staff to create the safest environment for their children. Consequentially, camp counselors and staff members must be alert and attentive at all times to prevent accidents and to respond to emergencies.
Recent studies suggest that a disturbing number of young adults are using drugs. In fact, a study conducted by the National Institute of Drug Abuse found that 40% of college students used drugs in the past month. Implementing a drug testing program in your camp not only will drastically mitigate risk related to hiring drug using employees, but also improve the quality of your applicant pool.
