Health Information

It is our goal to provide the safest and healthiest camp experience we can for your son. In order to do this we need your help in providing the following information to our medical staff at High Rocks. Our nurse will contact you anytime your son stays overnight in the infirmary or is seen by a physician. Please feel free to call our camp nurse at any time to ask questions or share any information that would be helpful.

It is very important that the physical exam form be carefully completed, signed by parent and doctor, and returned to camp, along with all other forms, no later than April 1st .

The Camper Medical Form is available online through the Parent Dashboard.  This also needs to be filled out online by April 1st .  Our camp R.N. must have the medical information prior to opening day in order to prepare infirmary records and to alert the staff to special situations.

Our camp infirmary will be stocked with common over-the-counter medication and standing orders from our camp physician will dictate their use

Any prescribed drugs should be delivered to the Camp Nurse upon arrival to camp on Opening Day.   All prescription medications to be dispensed at camp need to be in original prescription containers with the doctor’s name and dosage instructions. If your child uses an inhaler please send at least two with him to camp.

The Use of tobacco, alcohol and non-prescribed drugs will not be permitted among campers.  We prefer to keep camp a smoke-free environment and ask parents to please assist in keeping it this way.

Special Dietary Concerns: While we can accommodate many dietary concerns and allergies, it is important to contact our office to discuss these matters ahead of time to be sure we can work it out. We may ask for a physician’s nutritional plan if there are allergies and concerns.

We are conscious of the ingredients that are contained in our meals in regards to allergens.  Dining Hall meals typically have common allergens noted.  Campers and staff should be aware of the risk of cross-contamination that can occur in and around camp meals in the dining hall and out of camp trips.
