Be sure to apply sunscreen before your child leaves for camp in the morning. We will help campers reapply sunscreen after swimming.
Our administrative team serves as the camp nurse.
Counselors take campers to the office if they are not feeling well or hurt themselves.
Campers who visit the office will come home with “a note from the office”
The camp office is a favorite spot for many. A little scratch or bump brings many campers to our office, we are friendly and kind and campers love to visit, it is a very busy place. When your child is very sick it is not a quiet place to rest. It is important for you to pick up your child within an hour of being called.
If lice are reported in your group we will check each camper in the group for lice.
Campers who have lice are sent home immediately and are not allowed to return to the group or camp until the camp has re-checked them to be nit free. Campers must be brought to camp to be rechecked by the Camp before they can return to Camp.
When we call you
We will call for you to pick up your camper if your child has a fever of 99.5º or higher. A child must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to camp. For strep throat, “pink eye”, or any contagious illness needing antibiotics the CDC recommends 24 hours on medication before returning to camp activites.
We will call you if your child is unable to participate in activities due to illiness.
We will use your emergency numbers when your child is sick.
Medicine at camp
All prescription medication must be in a bottle from the pharmacy clearly labeled with the child’s name, the name of the medication, the daily dosage and detailed instructions for administering the medicine. A note with this information along with both parent and doctor signatures must also be on file in the camp office prior to the start of camp.
