Other standards vary, based on who is delivering the program or services and who has the responsibility for supervision of campers. For example, the requirements for the collection and maintenance of health information and healthcare supervision are different when the camp is operating a resident camp from when a weekend group rents the camp facilities to run their own program, because the responsibility for service may vary.
