Wellness & Safety

Pingry’s Big Blue Summer is fully committed to the wellness and safety of our campers. We are accredited by the American Camp Association, which sets rigorous safety guidelines in terms of facilities, food, transportation, emergency prevention/preparedness/response, and more.

At Pingry, our dedication to campers’ wellness and safety goes beyond our ACA accreditation standards by maintaining a low counselor-to-camper ratio, regularly practicing safety drills, and implementing efficient communication systems on both campuses.
