Make sure the Beat Goes On at camp
The Mikey Network is working with the Ontario Camp Association to make going to camp safer and more worry-free.
Sending your kids to camp is an annual experience for many Canadian parents. At the same time they can’t help but worry about them being away – often out in a rather remote location — and how long it might take an ambulance to arrive if a medical emergency should happen.
“We’re thrilled to be working with the OCA to install MIKEYs across the province’s summer and year-round camps, all while providing greater peace of mind to campers, parents, administrators and staff,” said Eva Naumovski, President of The Mikey Network.
Heather Heagle, Executive Director of Ontario Camps Association, is equally committed to the program. “Our member camps are each unique, and together they serve a diverse community,” she says. “But they are all committed to providing the safest and happiest camping experience possible for Ontario kids, and having a MIKEY at each camp will help us achieve just that.”
Andrew Martin, Owner-Director of Camp Can-Aqua, already has a defibrillator at his camp on the shores of Beaver Lake in Cardiff, Ontario.
“Camp Can-Aqua has been fortunate enough to have a MIKEY AED on-site since 2010. As standards pertaining to CPR continue to change and evolve to include the use of AED’s, having the unit on hand was an essential step in managing our health and safety protocols. It also provides staff and parents with peace of mind in knowing that if anyone within our camp community suffered Sudden Cardiac Arrest, we have the tools readily available to assist,” said Martin.
As part of the Mikey Goes To Camp program, The Mikey Network is making a defibrillator package available to Ontario Camp Association members, at a discounted rate.
