HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION

KEEPING YOUR CAMPER SAFE AT PARADISE POINT CAMP

We take seriously the responsibility of keeping campers safe and healthy. Starting with our registration process through the last moments at camp your camper's wellbeing is our top priority.

WHAT TRAINED STAFF HELP KEEP CAMPERS WELL?

All youth camp staff are CPR/First Aid/AED trained. We are grateful to have a health care professional on-site during youth camps to help with anything more serious than scrapes and bumps. Paradise Point Camp is a 20 minute drive from the nearest health center. The best way to keep campers safe and healthy is prevention. By encouraging a healthy diet, lots (and lots) of water drinking, and risk-management, Paradise Point is a safe place for kids to be active outdoors.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE MEDICATIONS?

Paradise Point Camp provides over the counter medications (Neosporin, Advil/Ibuprophen, etc.) for minor injuries. During the registration process in UltraCamp, parents or guardians can select any over the counter medications you do NOT want administered to your camper under the supervision of Paradise Point Camp's health care provider. 

*Change for 2022* All medications sent to camp must be in  packed blister-packs separated by day and delivery time. Review this document before sending any medications to camp. Exceptions include: epi pens, inhalers, liquids, creams, as needed (PRN) medications and birth control.  

DIETARY RESTRICTIONS OR FOOD ALLERGIES

Our kitchen staff at Paradise Point Camp can accommodate most major dietary restrictions with advanced notice (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, nut free or any combination). During the registration process let us know of any food allergies or dietary restrictions and their severity. Please note, we can not guarantee no cross contamination due to the shared food prep space in our kitchen. Paradise Point Camp is a peanut-free facility.

COVID 19 PRECAUTIONS FOR 2022

*Updated 6.16.2022* 

Paradise Point Camp continues to follow the guidance of the American Camp Association, Central District Health (our local health district) and the Center for Disease Control regarding camp and COVID-19. We also acknowledge the many changes that can happen in the lead up to youth camps. Thank you for your grace and flexibility as we work to create a safe camp and work environment for you, your camper, our staff, and the many communities affected.
