Medical Forms

Please be certain that you have filled out the online Health History form, and either scanned and uploaded or faxed the Physician’s Exam and Immunization Form. The Health History form now contains our Over the Counter Authorizations and digital Parent Authorization to Treat forms.

Doctors and hospitals will not treat children without a parent’s signature. Current information about medicine being taken and health concerns should be fully detailed in the online Health History form.

Regulations require that all prescription and over-the-counter medications be accompanied by a written authorization from a licensed health care provider.

Both prescription and over-the counter medications must be in original containers and labeled with camper’s name and dosage. At the end of the term, parents may pick up their child’s remaining medications at the health center. For campers who return home by air, medications will be pack in their luggage.

Medical Care

We have modern well-equipped health centers with registered nurses on duty in each camp, and we work closely with physicians in Woodland Park and Colorado Springs. It is a 30-minute drive to Pikes Peak Regional Hospital. Parents will be notified by phone / email if your child requires offsite care for illness or injury.


Medical expenses incurred by your child during camp will be covered by your family health insurance. Please include and/or update current insurance information on the online Health History form.

Families who live out of Colorado or whose insurance requires pre-authorization for use within a network of providers will want to determine how to access your insurance benefits if your child should need emergency or sick care while at camp.

Camp will pay required co-pays at the time of service; these will then be billed as a part of the camper’s expense account.

Campers who have a more serious or difficult to diagnose illness/injury will be transported to one of the camp’s doctors in Woodland Park or Colorado Springs.

Special Dietary Considerations

The demand for special diets has increased over the years, and we are able to accommodate some special dietary needs. Our kitchens are dedicated to producing nutritious high quality meals from fresh ingredients for our entire community and both space and time limit our ability to adequately provide for multiple special diets.

It is absolutely necessary that a child on a special diet be aware of his/her dietary needs, be cooperative with his/her dietary plan and self-advocate on trips or when away from the main camp area. He or she must be knowledgeable about what foods can and cannot be eaten and be willing to check in with our kitchen staff before each meal.

Please contact us and speak with a director regarding any special dietary needs your child has before enrolling them for camp.
