Push to Talk Two-Way Radios for Summer Camps

Summer camps are an exciting time for kids to have fun, learn new skills, and make friends. However, running a summer camp can be a challenging task for staff members who need to ensure the safety and security of campers while maintaining effective communication among staff. Push-to-talk two-way radios are a reliable and efficient communication tool that can benefit summer camp staff in several ways.

Instant Communication

Two-way radios allow summer camp staff to communicate with each other instantly. Unlike cell phones, two-way radios don’t require dialing a number or waiting for a connection. With the push of a button, staff members can communicate with each other and address any issues that may arise. This quick communication can help staff members respond promptly to emergency situations and coordinate activities effectively.

Coverage Area

Summer camps are typically situated in large outdoor areas with limited cellular coverage. Push-to-talk two-way radios can transmit signals across a broader range than traditional cellular devices and won’t hit a dead zone. This makes it easier for staff members to communicate in remote areas of the camp where cellular coverage is limited or non-existent. Two-way radios can also be used to communicate with staff members located in different areas of the camp, which can help them coordinate activities more efficiently.


Summer camps are full of outdoor activities, and the equipment used must be durable enough to withstand the various outdoor environments. Peak PTT two-way radios are designed to be rugged and can handle the wear and tear of outdoor use. They are built to resist water, dust, and impact, making them ideal for summer camps. Staff members can use two-way radios throughout the day without worrying about damaging them.

Peak PTT offers several rugged radios that are built to withstand dust and water like the PTT-584G, which has an IP rating of 67.

Hands-Free Communication

Push-to-talk two-way radios can be used hands-free with the help of earpieces or headsets. This allows staff members to communicate without having to hold the radio, which can be convenient when engaging in outdoor activities. It also frees up their hands to carry equipment or assist campers, making it easier to multitask.

Emergency Response

In case of an emergency, push-to-talk two-way radios can be invaluable. Staff members can quickly call for help and coordinate a response. With an included panic button, two-way radios can be used to alert other staff members of the emergency and direct them to the location where help is needed. This can help staff members respond to emergencies more efficiently and effectively.

Furthermore, Peak PTT two-radios come with a GPS tracking feature, so if a staff member gets lost or is trying to track a camper, they can easily be located.


Push to talk two-way radios are an excellent communication tool for summer camps. They offer instant communication, broader coverage, durability, hands-free communication, and emergency response capabilities. With push-to-talk two-way radios, summer camp staff members can stay connected, coordinate activities, and respond to emergencies quickly and efficiently.
