    Kids Camp

    What happens if my child gets hurt at camp?

    We pray that everyone at camp has a great experience and returns home without any injuries.

    Nurse Requirements

    • Our minimum requirement for all nurses is that they are certified in First Aid and CPR.
    • We strive to have a Registered Nurse with more thorough experience each week.
    • Typically, we have more than one nurse on the property for each week of camp and we have a head nurse that is advising all nurses for the entire year.

    Nurse Clinic Procedures

    • For minor issues, the onsite nurse is able to provide basic care and send the patient back to normal activities.
    • For medium-level incidents, the nurse reaches out to the group leader, camp director, and district leadership to inform them of the patient’s situation. The group leader will contact the student’s parents and allow them to make the final decision on the care provided. Occasionally, we may require the student to be sent home and the parents will need to come to get their child from the campground.
    • In an emergency situation, our licensed nurse responds very quickly, and we contact emergency personnel as the care may require.
    • In the most extreme cases, we may need to have the student transported to the hospital.
    • We also have a defibrillator on the property for the most severe situations.

    Hospital Visits

    • If an individual goes to the hospital, our primary focus is to get them the best possible care.
    • We will provide our camp insurance to the hospital.
    • Each patient will need to fill out their claim paperwork within 90 days of the incident.
    • We will provide this paperwork to each patient or the patient’s parents in an expedited timeframe after camp.
