General Health and Safety
•We have a Registered Nurse on duty from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
•All health forms must be completed and submitted no later than June 1st in order for your child to attend camp. All campers must have a completed emergency contact form at the camp so that we may know whom to call should the camper become ill. It is critical that these forms be kept up to date.
•All campers must have a health history form completed on an annual basis by their parent/guardian. This is necessary as a camper’s health status may change.
•All campers must carry accident insurance to cover injuries that might occur at camp. The camp does not provide such coverage. In the event that a family does not have medical insurance, all costs will be directly billed to the family.
•A signed immunization certificate from a physician must include the month, day and year of immunization.
•No medication (prescription or over-the-counter) may be administered at camp without an original physician’s prescription and signed parental consent. Any medication must be delivered by a parent/guardian in a sealed, original pharmacy container, in a sealed bag with the camper’s name, group and weeks clearly marked on the outside.
In the case of a mildly ill child:
•Should a camper fall ill at any point during the day, the child’s counselor will escort him/her to the health office to be examined by the camp nurse.
•The camper will be made comfortable by ensuring all of his/her needs are met (food, water, rest, comfort, reassurance).
•No prescription or over-the-counter medications, other than stated in standing orders, will be dispensed without a physician’s order and a written parental consent.
•If the child has a fever greater than >=101 or the camp nurse deems the child is too sick to participate in camp activities for the remainder of the day the parent/guardian will be notified immediately.
•It is the policy of the camp that children may not attend the program while ill. Parents are responsible for picking up the child from camp as soon as possible.
•If a parent/guardian cannot be reached, persons identified as emergency contacts on the camper’s health record will be notified.
•In the event that a parent cannot arrange for the child to be picked up from camp in a timely manner, the child will stay with the camp nurse until pick-up occurs.
