WAYS ALDERSGATE KEEPS

CAMPERS SAFE & HEALTHY

  • CAMP NURSE

    • Our nurse sees all campers who are sick or injured.  If they need more than basic first aid or need to go home, she will call you!

  • FIRST AID TRAINING

    • All our senior staff are trained in First Aid, CPR, AED, and administering EPI-Pens.  Our staff carry first aid kids and notify the nurse every time they administer first aid.

    • Our staff also receive training on spotting ticks, poison ivy, and signs of dehydration so they can help campers avoid these common summer hazards!

    • Our staff remind campers throughout the day to reapply sunscreen, use extra bug spray if going into the woods, and to drink water!

  • ALLERGY AWARENESS

    • Aldersgate does not serve nuts or allow campers to bring food with peanuts or tree nuts.

    • Our kitchen staff can accommodate most food allergies and dietary restrictions.

WAYS FAMILIES CAN KEEP

CAMPERS SAFE & HEALTHY

  • PREPARE YOUR CAMPER EACH DAY

    • Make sure you camper brings bug spray (with DEET), sunscreen, and a water bottle to camp each day.  Counselors will remind them to use these items but they can't use them if they don't have them!

  • KEEP SICK CAMPERS HOME

    • If your camper has a fever, is vomiting, or has diarrhea please keep them home until they have been clear of symptoms for 24 hours. 

  • LEAVE NUTS AT HOME

    • If your camper brings their own lunch or snack, leave the nuts at home! We do not allow peanuts or tree nuts.​

  • COMMUNICATE WITH OUR CAMP NURSE

    • If your camper has medical needs, please make sure our camp nurse is aware of them before camp begins!
