Outdoor Health & Safety

 

All camp and outdoor programs are planned and staffed according to the high standards of Girl Scouts of the USA. First-aiders direct the first aid tent or station at each camp or event and are supported by on-call services of a local physician and emergency medical center. A level 2 first-aider is needed for all events serving 200 or more participants. If a camper is on medication, the first-aider will administer and document it. Campers must turn in all medication (in the original container) to the first-aider upon arrival at camp.

Health histories are required for all programs. Physical exams are required for programs lasting more than three nights. Any health exam that occurred within the preceding 24 months is acceptable. Once a girl registers, she’ll receive the proper health form and instructions in her confirmation packet. So that we can provide the best possible experience for your camper, please note any special needs, disabilities or dietary restrictions on her registration form under “special needs”. This helps us to establish appropriate staffing and any additional accommodations that a camper may require. Download the Health History Form and Girl Health Examination Record now.

Camp activities are to be scrutinized to ensure that all activities are done safely. Please check out the Safety Activity Checkpoints.
