General

We understand that you're entrusting to us the most important part of your lives, and we do all we can to ensure the health and safety of your children. We commit to you that we'll be proactive in pursuing you in the event that something happens to your child to ensure you're getting the information you need as a parent to make decisions about your child's health. We do understand that you might not want to know about every bump or bruise, but if our nurse and/or camp director feels that the incident is significant, you will receive a phone call alerting you of the situation. Generally, if your child has to sit out of an activity for even a short period of time, and definitely if the injury/illness requires medical care beyond what our nurse can provide, you will be notified.

At the overnight camp, we have a nurse on our staff on property full-time to handle any medical needs, including disbursement of medication and injuries. He/She also acts as a consultant to our day camp location in the event of need. In addition, all of our staff at both camp locations, are trained in first aid and CPR before the start of the summer

Other Health Notes

All campers are required to fill out a comprehensive health history form before arriving at camp. This form ensures that we have all the information we need to provide the best possibly care for your child while at camp, as well as any information a doctor might need to assist your child in the event of an emergency. While it may take a few minutes to fill out, it is essential that we have complete record of any medical concerns so we can provide the best possible care!

Allergies and Intolerances

Please let us know if your child has any allergies/intolerances (needed in the health history form) so that we can be aware of potential hazards.

Medication

Medication will only be distributed under the specific instructions of the camper's physician and with written permission from a legal parent/guardian. All medication, including over-the-counter meds, need to be given to the nurse (at overnight camp) or camp director (at day camp) upon arrival; no medication is allowed in the cabins or camper groups.

Financial Assistance

Click here for Financial Assistance information - We know how stressful these time are for most of us, and the costs of camp are no different. This is why we have created an account specifically designed with you in mind. Through our Scholarship Program, parents can still send their children to Camp without breaking their wallets! No child should be turned away from Camp because their family cannot afford it. If you find the need for financial assistance then this scholarship is for you. Please return all confidential forms to information@camphighland.com before registering for camp.

Camp In Touch

One account gives you access to your data, your child's information, secure online applications, as well as summer photos, news, and email. All of your forms are online in one place and the information flows directly into your database. This also gives you the ability to update your information: addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, billing info, photos of your child and more. After your application has been processed you will be notified of your enrollment status and you will receive an enrollment confirmation email.
