Emergencies & Injuries
In the case of an emergency, instructors and camp managers are expected to follow the guidelines they have been provided with by the Head of Camp Administration. Students are expected to follow the instructor’s directions. The camp managers and Head of Camp Administration issue all commands in an emergency.
Instructors are required to read through their class lists, and to make note of any reported allergies or health conditions. Parents are encouraged to contact camp managers in advance of camp to personally discuss any important health concerns.
Instructors and camp managers may not administer any medication to students, unless the parent has given notice of the medical condition during enrollment, and has provided the camp managers with a doctor’s note about dosage for the specific student. Parents and camp managers must agree on a safe space to store the medication that is inaccessible to young students.
Instructors and camp managers always tell parents about any injury or potential injury.
For small cuts, scrapes, and similar minor injuries, instructors and camp managers may wash injuries with soap and water, and will provide band-aids, but will not administer medications like Neosporin.
If a student has a concerning or potentially concerning injury (e.g. larger fall in playground, any injury to head or neck), camp managers will complete an Injury Report, file it with the Head of Camp Administration, and provide parents with an electronic copy.

- If necessary, call 911.
- Call the camp managers or Head of Camp Administration for immediate support.
