Summer camp staff members need push to talk two way radios they can rely on to communicate effectively when they need it most. These are some of the key features to look for when choosing two-way radios for your summer camp staff.
- Waterproof. This is essential for all summer camp positions as there is often water involved and any member of your team must be prepared to dive in without hesitation when a camper’s life and/or safety is at risk. They must also be rated to withstand wind and rain, which can also be uncomfortably persistent during some summer camp events.
- Durable. Summer camp is a time when the unexpected is largely expected. Plan for that with radios that are built to take a few hard knocks and still operate flawlessly. Ruggedized radios are often the way to go as they are rated well for bumps and bruises and often have high tolerances for water as well.
- Voice enhancement. There is always noise at summer camp. Even in the wee hours of morning campers are whispering and giggling in their bunks. Effective two-way radios for summer camps operate voice enhancing features that mute background noises for crystal clear communication.
