The Health Inspector

If you've ever worked in a food place, you what it's like to see a Health Inspector walk through your doors or up to your counter. Panic is perhaps and excellent word to use.

At camp, we are subject to all of the usual rules you know about {food prep, having working toilets, etc.} but also anything/everything to do with hiring, training, child abuse prevention, pools, CPR certifications, lifeguards, emergency exits, medications, knowing emergency escape routes and numbers, etc. {the actual report is maybe....5 pages long}.

Of course, we follow all the rules. We want camp to be safe, clean and healthy for everyone. It is extremely important to me that our campers aren't stumbling upon prescription medications, and that they're adequately supervised at the pool. And, it's important to me that someone verifies to me that my staff and I are doing a good job of making sure that all of the rules are followed.

But still. When the Health Inspector shows up on the 3rd day of camp? Panic.

Imagine, if you will, staff members running around with toilet paper and paper towels, posting signs that new staff have forgotten, making sure that everyone has kept up with their logs......We do all of these things on a regular basis, but usually a few things get missed on the first few days of camp. Then, you walk around with the {very nice} inspector and she asks questions, some of which make you panic more because you're sure you've forgotten something.

Despite all that, you know what happened? We got a perfect score. Boom.
