Oversight of Children’s Camps

The operations of children’s camps are overseen by the Department of Health. To be issued an operating permit, camps must be inspected annually and meet certain other requirements. However, we found that some camps were issued permits even though they may not have met all the requirements for a permit. We recommend that the Department more closely monitor local health agencies and take steps to improve the accuracy and completeness of its information about existing camps.
