We take the health and safety of all of our campers very seriously. Camp Selah will be operating this summer (2021) under the guidance and authority of Michigan state licensing and regulatory affairs, and will be working in conjunction with the Branch/St. Joseph/Hillsdale County Health Department. We will keep families informed as to any changes to our operation as they occur.

The food service staff at Camp Selah does not include a registered dietician. Therefore, any camper with physician-diagnosed food allergies or other eating disabilities will be responsible for supplying food substitutions to accommodate unacceptable menu items for their diet. The food service staff will be happy to store/prepare these substitutions. To request menu copies for your review or for further information or questions, contact Food Service Director, Sharon Winkler firstname.lastname@example.org.
We seek to provide a safe and loving environment for each camper. To make sure of this, we adhere to a set camper discipline policy: 1st offense, verbal warning; 2nd offense, phone call to parents; 3rd offense, dismissal. We also strictly enforce a no-prank-policy.
A certified health officer is on site at all times during camp and a designated camp doctor is nearby in case of emergency. If a camper becomes injured or sick, the health officer will do the initial assessment and determine the best course of action. If a situation warrants a camper visiting a doctor, hospital or returning home, the health officer will communicate with the parent/guardian of the child directly to determine the next steps. Ultimately the decision will ALWAYS be up to the parent of the child.
Campers are covered by a secondary accident/illness insurance policy. In the event of an accident, the camper’s personal insurance company will be billed for any medical-related expenses with Camp Selah’s insurance covering any remaining balance.
Large Families: the 3rd child & beyond receive a 33% discount.
Frequent Campers: There is a 33% discount for attending camp a second week.
