The health and safety of our campers is our number one priority. Onsite Healthcare Staff will work closely with parents to provide high quality emergency and routine care.
Please complete the Health History Form for your child at least two weeks prior to your child’s camp session. The form must be completed online. Please make sure to tell us everything we need to know in order to keep your child safe and healthy. Your child’s personal health information is kept as secure as possible, shared only with the Healthcare Staff and those who work directly with your child. Following registration you will receive information that tells you about our partnership with CampDoc.com and provides the necessary instructions to logon, create your camper’s account, and how to update your information for return campers who attended during a previous season. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org as a safe sender and watch for an email from CampDoc.com to make sure the information does not end up in your junk mail. Please allow up to 10 days after registration, or at least 7 days prior to camp session. Physical exams are recommended every two years, but are not required. Please feel free to contact us with any concerns you may have so we can help make your child’s camp experience a positive one.
All medications will be collected each day by staff members for secure storage and dispensing at the Health Care Center. Exceptions may include inhalers, bee sting kits and creams/ointments at the discretion of the Healthcare Staff. If you are sending medication to camp with your child, including over-the-counter and prescription medication or vitamins, please read the following:
Campers with life-threatening health concerns or allergies must submit an Emergency Action Plan (available from school district or physician) at least two (2) weeks prior to attending camp.
Please note children with communicable diseases may not attend camp until no longer contagious. With a doctor’s note, we can move your child into a later session if space is available, or fully refund the camp registration fee. Campers with injuries, including broken bones or stitches, require a doctor’s note to attend camp. To maintain a healthy camp, please keep your child home for the following reasons:
Call the Camp Fire office to let them know the camper will not be attending or to arrange for late arrival.
If your child is injured or develops a significant illness while at camp requiring special care from the Healthcare Staff or additional medical care outside of camp, you, the parent, will be contacted as soon as possible. In most cases, children who become too ill to remain at camp will be sent home to rest and recover. Parents are responsible for the cost of any outside medical care or expenses incurred while attending camp. If a child gets sick at camp, the camp registration fees may be refunded at a prorated rate or the camper may be able to attend a later session.
Our Health Care Staff is available to provide both routine and emergency care for campers. An AED is kept on site, and Spokane County Fire District services can be at camp in 5 minutes or less. Staff and volunteers complete thorough training and rehearsal for a wide range of emergency situations.
