There are 2 sets of health history forms to be completed.
Form 1) Must be filled out online by logging into your online account and reviewing your registration. Please be sure to complete 1 form per camper.
Form 2) Is available on the FORMS page of our website, should be printed out and brought to your child’s pediatrician for completion.
All forms should be completed and submitted to the camp office no later than May 1st. Forms submitted after this deadline will be subject to a $30 processing fee.
Whenever possible, please administer all medications at home. If medications must be given during camp hours, please carefully review the following information.
Our staff cannot oversee administration of medication to any child without written permission from BOTH the camper’s physician and the parent/guardian. A camper must also be able to recognize and self-administer medications in order to take them while at camp. Permission for medication and self-administration can be indicated on the Health Form (see previous section for link). This portion of the form must be completed for BOTH prescription and over-the-counter medication. Additional forms are available in our camp office.
Note: All prescription medication must be kept in the actual container in which it was received from the pharmacy. The container should include the prescribing doctor’s name, name of medication, procedures for use, and the child’s name. Any medication sent to camp MUST be checked in at the camp office or with your designated bus monitor. Do not rely on your child to deliver medications.
Illness and emergency procedures:
Please be sure to visit our Summer 2020 Updates page for procedures pertaining to Covid-19.
Please notify the Health Director if your child is diagnosed with a communicable disease so that we may determine what date your child may be reasonably expected to return. A physician’s written permission to return to camp may be required.
If a camper becomes ill during the camp day and is unable to participate in activities, the parent/guardian will be notified. Based on guidelines provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is our policy that any child displaying one or more of the following symptoms must be picked up by a parent or guardian as soon as possible:
- A temperature if 100 degrees or higher
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- Rash (if cause is unknown)
- Visible symptoms of contagious or communicable illness
- Severe cold with fever, coughing, unclear mucus
- Bronchitis or other throat infections, such as strep
- Head lice or similar parasitic infestation
A child cannot return to camp until these symptoms have been absent for a minimum of 24 hours and/or a physician has approved their return. In addition to these conditions, children deemed too ill to participate in camp activities—based on the discretion of our Health Director—will be sent home, even in the absence of the symptoms listed above.
If a camper is hurt, the Health Director or an authorized member of the day camp staff will administer immediate first aid. If the situation should require immediate medical attention, the camp staff will attempt to contact and inform the parent/guardian as soon as circumstances permit. In the event that the parent/guardian cannot be reached, the emergency contact person will be called. The Camp staff will call the designated physician and/or local emergency unit for treatment and/or transportation to a hospital. A staff member will accompany the camper to the hospital and stay until the parent/guardian arrives and transfers the camper into their custody.
