Medical Care & Policies
Please notify our office if there are any updates to your child’s medical, allergy, or dietary information prior to camp.
All medications (including puffers, epi-pens, vitamins, etc.) must be handed into the Camp Nurse during registration along with appropriate medication forms (see below).
Overnight Campers will have a lice check during sign-in. Campers with lice or nits will need to return home to remove all lice and nits before being allowed to return to camp. While we understand that not all nits are “live” there is no way for us to determine if a nit is live or not, and as such no nits may be present. To make the process run more smoothly, we recommend that campers come with their hair down or in a simple ponytail.
Day Campers will not have a lice check, but will wear a polypropylene bouffant hairnet during each helmeted activity to reduce potential transmission.
