For the Health and Safety of All Campers and Staff:
All campers will be screened during the check-in process on opening day of each session. Campers exhibiting the following conditions will be sent back home. NO EXCEPTIONS!
A fever of 99.6 or higher
Severe viral respiratory congestion/cough
Vomiting/diarrhea within the last 8 hours
Chicken pox (or other obvious communicable disease symptoms)
All campers need to be current on their immunizations. In the event of an out-break or suspected case of a vaccine-preventable disease, campers that have not been vaccinated will be sent home.
For Campers with Medication:
ALL medications, supplements, etc. must be turned into the health professional. Emergency inhalers, epipens, and topical solutions may be kept with the camper, but still need to be checked in with the health professional upon arrival.
All medications and supplements must come to camp in the original container.
DO NOT pack medication in your suitcase! Take it separately for easy check-in with the health professional.
Prescription medications (including inhalers and epi-pens) must come with either an attached prescription label or a signed physician's note. Campers can take prescription medication only if prescribed to their name.
Campers diagnosed with contagious symptoms such as pink eye or strep throat will be sent home, but may return to camp after being on a prescribed antibiotic for 24 hours.
If your child is identified with head lice during camp, you will be notified to pick up your child and keep them at home until treatment has occurred and the issue is resolved. The camper will be allowed to return to camp only after inspection by the health care professional.
If your child develops a fever or other symptoms of a contagious illness, he/she will be seperated from the other campers and we will attempt to reach parents first. If parents can not be reached, we will phone the names of the secondary contacts as provided on the child's registration. The camp healthcare professional, after speaking with the parent, will determine if the child needs to return home.
Your child must be fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of anti-fever medications before they can return to camp.
