Planning for Camp
Medical/Health Form Requirements
The online camper medical form, located in your family registration account will need to be completed by everyone prior to January 1st or at the time of registration. In addition to health-related questions, this form allows us to treat and/or seek medical attention for your camper in the event it is needed. (Note to returning families: last year’s information will auto populate. However, you still need to review the form, complete any blank fields and “submit” the form.)
In addition to the online health form, camp requires a current (within 12 months) physical signed by your child’s health care provider which indicates he/she is able to participate in camp activities. This form should not be mailed to Camp. – PLEASE UPLOAD TO YOUR ACCOUNT IN CAMPBRAIN PRIOR TO MAY 1ST. IF YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT SCHEDULED AFTER THIS DATE, PLEASE UPLOAD THE PRIOR YEAR’S PHYSICAL UNTIL A NEW ONE IS AVAILABLE.
If your physician does not provide a physical form noting that your child is able to participate in school sports or camp activities, please have your physician fill out and sign this form and upload to your camp account. This form may be used in lieu of the camper physical and/or physician statement of well-being for participation in camp/sports with no restrictions. (Download)
For campers taking any medications (prescription and/or over-the counter): Written M.D. orders for all medications need to be provided along with the medication in its original container(s) to the nurse at check-in.
If you have any questions regarding the online health form or if you feel that you need to touch base with our nursing staff prior to your child attending camp, please contact the office.
On check-in day, your camper will be seen by a nurse who will be able to review his/her records. Additionally, your child will have a head lice check before being able to settle into his/her cabin.
