CARING FOR YOUR CHILD

Providing your child with the ultimate care and safety is our number one priority at camp. Facilities and policies have been constructed to provide a thorough and consistently safe program. During Orientation and Staff Training, all staff are trained in safety rules and expectations for all aspects of camp life. Safety regulations are reviewed and practiced by all campers and staff.

We feel a keen sense of responsibility for the health and safety of your child. Our infirmary operates as a primary care clinic for the camp. Your child’s health record is maintained there and should they need medical assistance we are well equipped to help them. Our medical staff consists of one full-time physician and three full-time nurses. Our doctors rotate on a weekly basis.  The infirmary is fully stocked with medical supplies to aid with everything from minor abrasions to more serious conditions. We also carry a defibrillator on site.

If our medical staff feels a camper needs treatment that we cannot provide, we have excellent medical facilities just 25 minutes away in Harris, NY at Catskill Regional Medical Center .

SENDING MEDICATION TO CAMP

We are committed to ensuring your child is provided with the ultimate care.   Please do not send medication up to camp with your child.

We have selected J Drug pharmacy to supply prepackaged medications for our campers. All prescription medications, over the counter medications, vitamins, and supplements that are taken on a daily basis must be ordered through J Drugs. This company packages all pills individually in a dose packet for each day of camp.  The J Drugs form can be found by logging into your Campminder account and going to forms & documents.  

If you send medication to camp with your child (instead of ordering through J Drug pharmacy),that medication cannot be used, and you will be charged a packaging and rush fee by J Drugs as well as an additional $50 fee for shipping and handling.  

Do NOT send any over the counter medication with your daughter. OTC medication (including Advil, Claritin, Melatonin, etc.), which is not allowed in the bunks as per Board of Health regulations.
