Health, Safety and Security

The health and safety of campers is our highest priority. Camp Mosh is accredited by the American Camp Association and licensed by the State of Maryland, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Regular camp inspections and policy reviews ensure that we are meeting and exceeding the health and safety standards set out by and for the camping industry.

Camp Moshava conducts an annual security assessment with the Director of Security at The Associated (Baltimore Jewish Federation). All recommendations are implemented. We maintain an on-going relationship with local law enforcement officials so that we can be alerted to any potential threats. Staff receive training and run drills to practice our emergency procedures. Campers will also participate in fire and weather drills while they are at camp. Your camper's safety is our top priority!


Camper Health

Two full-time, onsite nurses (RN) oversee our new, well-equipped infirmary. Staff members are certified in First Aid and CPR. Our team of dedicated nurses work with parents to keep them informed about their child's health status while at camp. An urgent care clinic and hospital are located just 11 miles from camp if emergency care is needed. We also have a consulting physician and Health Supervisor who are not only available for medical consultation but also review our treatment practices and policies to ensure that the campers and staff at Camp Mosh receive the best care.

All counselors live with their assigned campers, who are grouped according to their age and gender. All camp facilities are cleaned daily, and laundry service is provided weekly.


Immunizations

Camp Moshava requires all campers and staff to be fully vaccinated according to the CDC immunization schedule for their age group. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis with physician documentation indicating that immunization is not possible due to a medical condition e.g. immune-comprised individuals.
