Is there a law regarding adult-to-child ratios at summer camps?
I recently learned that the adult chaperone-to-child ratio on these trips will be 14 kids per adult. This sounds unsafe to me, particularly for the younger kids (as well as for the older teens - who could easily find a way to get separated on purpose).
Are there any state or federal laws that govern adult-to-child ratios at summer camps? I know I can choose to opt out of this city-run camp (and select a more expensive private option with better ratios). However, I also think they should adjust if they aren't currently following the law with regards to safe supervision ratios. Thanks for any information or links you have.
