Most of our staff have been trained in CPR & First-aid, and we have a full time health officer on staff. While accidents do happen, we are fully prepared to deal with any situation
We require a Class 2 Health form for everyone who is in camp. Whether you are a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Tag-a-long, parent, our community member, it is required by our camp standards. The health form includes a brief health history, shot record, copy of insurance card, and a parent signature. We do NOT require a doctor signed physcial because you will not be staying in camp for more thasn 72 hours.
For any major medical concern or need related to someone attending camp, we want you to inform us at least one week ahead of time. This will allow us to make appropriate preparations prior to your week attending camp. Specific details are listed to the right.

Indiana law requires all medications be turned in to the Health Officer so the camp can control and dispense them. The medication should be in it original container, which should indicate the child's name, unit number, phone number, and the instructions as how to administer the dosage.
Our Camp has very specific emergency procedures which are explained to the leaders on the very first day of camp. These situations include What needs to be done in the event of severe weather, extreme heat, or serious injury. The staff is well trainned to handel whatever situation may arise.
