Checklist for Safer Camp Experiences
At the Y, we practice three important habits of Child Abuse Prevention - KNOW, SEE and RESPOND - to create safe spaces where youth can learn, grow, and thrive. When we KNOW how abuse happens, SEE the warning signs and RESPOND quickly to prevent it, together we foster a culture of child abuse prevention.
We know when we understand the behaviors of those who harm youth and how to stop them. Staff and volunteers who practice the KNOW habit:
Increase energy, decrease stress, prevent illness, maintain a healthy weight, find personal balance, and enjoy quality time with family and friends... at the Y! We combine spirit, mind, and body in an integrated approach to well-being that goes beyond just fitness.
