If my camper(s) has an allergy or medical issue that requires taking medication, what is done to insure they take their meds?
During registration, please fill out the “medical” question section and notify us of the issue, medication, and dosage amount and times. Our nurse will keep the medications and make sure your child takes them. Their counselor will also be notified of the allergy/condition, and we will place a bright pink wristband on the camper.
If my camper(s) has a behavioral or medical problem, will they be allowed to register?
Absolutely. Once again, please notify us of the issue, and we will handle it accordingly.
Who do I give their medication to?
For bus riders, please give it to Nurse Donna (she will be at Ballard in the morning). For car riders, please give medications to their counselors, and we will deliver them to Donna when she arrives.
What if my camper gets hurt?
We take them to our First Aid station where Nurse Donna examines their injury. Nurse donna will call you to come pick up your child if necessary, otherwise, she documents each case that comes to her and follows up with a phone call in the evening.
What if my child is not a great swimmer?
We require life jackets to be worn around the lake at all times. Lifeguards put them on the campers and check them before allowing them in the water. We realize some of the campers are excellent swimmers and may not need a life jacket, but it’s a requirement for everyone who steps foot in the lake. We have multiple certified lifeguards at the lake to make sure it’s as safe as possible. Additionally, we have a shallow end by the beach that is roped off for our younger campers who are unsure of their swimming abilities.
