Minor headaches, stomach pain, cramps, and cuts should be reported to the student’s counselor right away. First-aid kits will be available and will be administered by the staff. Camp staff is not allowed to give students any medication unless authorized by the student’s parent, guardian, or medical personnel. Over-the-counter medication can be provided by a nurse or a medical professional, if necessary.
If the health condition is severe enough to warrant immediate medical attention, the Head Counselor and/or the Outreach Program Manager should take the student to the nearest emergency hospital and notify the parent/guardians immediately. The Outreach Program Manager will hold all emergency medical forms and health insurance information on hand at all times, in case of such emergencies.
All accidents are to be reported to the Outreach Program Manager and/or Head Counselor. Parents/guardians will be notified of all accidents/incidences that require professional assistance.
