For Camps

Teach Water And Camp Safety Together

As a camp you are providing a space for kids to learn and explore in a safe environment. One of the most important lessons for children is water safety! Use our program to go beyond swimming lessons and teach SAFER behaviors to prevent childhood drowning.

The Whole Hand Rules of Water Safety has been taught to thousands of children since 2015. With this evidence-based program, Colin’s Hope aims to help camps like yours encourage a safer culture around all kinds of water for families and their children, your campers. These water safety lessons can prevent a drowning situation at your camp.
