Child Protection
How we protect campers:

Adventure China is committed to working in a way that ensures that children and vulnerable adults never experience abuse of any kind.

We require all participants to understand that any inappropriate behaviour towards children or vulnerable adults will be reported by camp to the law enforcement authorities.

"Child protection is at the forefront of our recruitment."

Smaller Earth

Smaller Earth is the organisation that operates the Adventure China programme.

It is our responsibility to ensure that every participant on the program receives the highest level of police clearance available in his or her country of residence. Through our comprehensive interview process we assess the participant’s suitability for the camp environment.

Smaller Earth’s staff are trained to refuse to take someone forward if they feel that the applicant is not suitable, or poses a risk to the children that will be in their care.

Camp

Our camps are selectively chosen by our Adventure China experts to ensure that each camp holds our high standard of child protection and safeguarding of campers.

Each camp has its own strict procedures that combine all the other requirements, plus their own specific needs into one clear and defined policy.

During staff training this will be made clear. You will attend workshops covering the policies and throughout the summer you, your fellow staff, your supervisors and the Camp Directors will all take responsibility to deliver these high standards.

Chinese Authorities

The law of the People's Republic of China governs life in China, and child protection is taken very seriously. Mandatory reporting of incidents and a clear structure of prevention helps protect Chinese and international campers.

At Smaller Earth we whole-heartedly support the work of all of the organisations involved in child protection.

We believe that the candidates we work with are of the highest caliber and we continue to expect everything will be done to protect children at camp.
