At Upper Missouri Ministries the safety of your child is our number one priority. Below are our safety practices. Please contact UMM office with any questions or concerns.
What does Camp look like
Serving healthy & well balanced meals that are kid friendly is our goal. The salad bar is always stocked with fresh fruits & vegetables. Our kitchen staff is ready to work with dietary needs & restrictions so kids (& parents) don’t have to worry about food & just have fun.
UMM is a peanut free environment.
Your child will stay in a newly constructed cottage with up to 9 other children. Each cottage includes:
- Private Bathrooms
- 2 Adult Supervisors
- Air Conditioning
- Bunk Beds
to see photos of where your camper will stay.
Each Summer Staff member is handpicked by our Year Round Staff to ensure an excellent & caring young adult will be leading your child. Our Summer Staff have completed:
- Reference Check
- Background Check
- Two Weeks of Training
- First Aid/CPR Training
- Current Lifeguard Certification (for all waterfront staff)
In case of severe weather each staff member is trained on the location of fire & tornado shelters. Campers, led by their leader, will go to the tornado shelter when a tornado watch or warning has been issued & will remain there until the watch or warning has been cancelled.
Campers are required to wear sunscreen every day at camp and are instructed to re-apply every hour. In the case of extreme heat, staff monitor the water intake of campers to be sure they are hydrated.
Schedule adjustments are made to ensure campers are getting adequate shade & air conditioning during especially warm days.
