Emergency Communication

Camper Emergencies

If a camper is injured or becomes ill while at camp, the camp nurse will evaluate the situation. The nurse will determine if we need to transport the camper to a clinic or to the hospital. Any time a camper is referred to medical attention outside of camp, parents will be contacted by phone.

Please make sure that your emergency contact information is up to date in our registration system! Your family accident/health medical insurance will be billed, and you will be advised of and billed for any other medical expenses such as special medication and/or supplies advised by the physician.
