Health & Safety
The health and safety of our campers is our number one priority.
All Camp Carvela staff are first aid and CPR certified through the American Red Cross.
If campers feel unwell or require basic medical attention while at camp, our on-site nurse is available to care for campers at our Health Lodge. Located at the center of camp, the Health Lodge is open 24-7 and includes a sick room for campers who require extra rest and observation.
In the unlikely event of a severe medical emergency, our staff is equipped to transport campers to a nearby hospital or urgent care center.
Parents/guardians and/or emergency contacts will be contacted early and often in the event of camper illness, injury, or other incident.
Medications at Camp
All medications brought to camp must be in their original containers and will be kept in the Health Lodge (with the exception of inhalers and EpiPens, which can be kept with campers and/or counselors). Neither campers nor staff are allowed to keep any medication in their cabin, including vitamins and over-the-counter medicine.
All medication MUST be documented with the specified dosage on your camper's Health History form, which you will complete during registration.
Upon arrival at camp, you and your camper will speak with our Health Officer to advise on the dosage/timing of your camper's medications. The Health Officer administers medications every morning and evening (and at other times as-needed).
Any medication remaining at the end of your camper's session will be returned to you at pick-up on the last day of camp.
Please note: we highly encourage you to maintain your campers' existing medication routine while at they are at camp. Camp is not an ideal place to try a new medication or eliminate a medication.
