According to reports, about 14 million people attend summer camp in the United States each year. While camp may provide a valuable experience for a child, it can be difficult for parents to send their kids away to camp since they are giving up supervision of their child and the assurance that their child is safe. This is true for both sleep away camps and for day camps as accidents and injuries regularly happen at both types of summer camps.

The following are some of the more common types of accidents that may occur at summer camp:

  • Falling – such as out of trees, off playground, or from other heights
  • Colliding with something or someone – Children can be reckless and they can often run into another person or objects.
  • Boat and water accidents – Many camps include a variety of watersports and time out on different types of boats, which opens kids up to the risks of tragic drowning accidents.
  • Burns – Many camps have traditional campfires or other activities involving flames or fire, which can cause burns.
  • Allergic reactions – If you warned the camp that your child has an allergy and they were exposed because the camp was negligent, your child can be injured.

Hearing that your child was injured at camp can be worrisome and even devastating in the event of severe injuries. You want to ensure that your child gets the best possible medical care as soon as possible. In addition, if the camp was responsible for the incident, you likely want to hold the camp owners liable for the medical costs and other losses your family incurred.

However, if the accident happened because your child was simply being a kid or was clumsy, it may not be possible to recover compensation from the camp. The important thing is to have your situation evaluated by an experienced Stamford, CT personal injury attorney as soon as possible who can advise you of your rights.
