International Camp Suisse is proud to announce that following a rigorous audit and inspection of its activities and operations this summer, the Company has been awarded ‘Adventuremark’ accreditation.
What is Adventuremark? Adventuremark is a non-statutory safety scheme devised by the Adventure Activity Industry Advisory Committee (AAIAC) in the United Kingdom for providers of adventurous activities.
The award demonstrates that International Camp Suisse and its staff deliver the adventurous activities of the programme to the highest standards in terms of safety, risk management, organisation and staff competence. Adventure activities include Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing, Hiking, Archery and Orienteering and all were inspected to ensure delivery with the highest safety standards in accordance with current best practice.
At Camp Suisse, we work very hard to ensure that our summer camp provides exceptionally high quality adventure activities and we have always strived to maintain our excellent safety record of which we are very proud. As we operate outside of the UK we are not subjected to the Adventurous Activities Licensing Regulations, but gaining Adventuremark mirrors the AALA requirements.
Technical Adviser Ian Johnston said “I am really pleased with the outcome of the inspection, from the very beginning Camp Suisse have strived to recruit the right people to deliver their adventure programme. Year on year the staff, programme, venues, equipment and external providers are scrutinised to ensure activities are delivered to the very highest standards. Rather than just believing we do it, Adventuremark proves we do it! All the hard work has paid off and we now have a firm footing in the Outdoor Education marketplace from which we can further develop our programme of activities. This is a significant moment.”
