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 posted and practiced by all campers and staff.
Our camp voluntarily adheres to over 400 separate standards dealing with all aspects of a camp’s operation: health & safety, leadership, food service and maintenance, staffing, programming, and administration.
We feel a keen sense of responsibility for the health and safety of your child and as such we employ the following health procedures during camp. Our medical staff confers with counselors on the daily health habits of the children in their bunk house, and they also advise the administration regarding all health and safety matters.
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 one full-time nurse. 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 18 minutes away in Monticello. We also have a local dentist available if necessary.
