   Pick-up Information
    Please make sure you have given us every additional person who has permission to pick up your child
from camp on Saturday. Your child’s counselor will be required to check off that your camper was
picked up by an allowed individual.


   Health & Medications
    Bring enough medication to last the entire week at camp. Keep it in the original packaging/bottle
that identifies the prescribing physician (if a prescription drug), the name of the medication, the dosage,
and the frequency of administration. Place all bottles of medications in a zip-loc bag with the camper’s
name written on it. Please do not bring in other dispensers. At check-in you will be required to go over all
medication and health concerns with the Camp Nurse. The camp stocks over the counter medication such
as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc if needed for your child. If any questions arise, our Camp Nurse will contact you.


   Excess Medical Insurance Policy
    Our policy is such that in the event of an accident requiring medical attention, claims will first be filed
against the parent’s insurance company. After the limits of that policy have been exhausted, or to
recover any deductible amounts, claims may be filed against our limited insurance, up to $10,000. In the
absence of any group or individual policy, our insurance will provide coverage with the limits and provisions
of the policy. In the event of an accident, every effort will be made to contact you before any action is
taken. If this is not possible, the director and camp nurse will make a decision based on what treatment
your camper may need. You will be contacted as soon as possible.


   Special needs
    Dietary, medical, personal, behavioral and/or physical special needs must be reported on the
registration Health Form. Verbal follow-up to the office or nurse at registration is appreciated. Our staff will
make every effort to accommodate these needs.


 Swim Test
  Each camper will take a swim test. Wristbands are given to show the campers swimming abilities.
Some activities require higher levels of swimming ability.


   Store/ Bank (Money Cards)
    Each camper will be able to deposit money into their accounts for the week of camp if they choose.
They will be given a store/bank (money card) and can use their spending money at the canteen where they
can buy snacks and camp apparel and at the handcraft center for arts and crafts. We have our canteen
that carries souvenirs, toys, gifts and apparel! During our Junior High camps, campers can also use their
money to play extra games of paintball during free time.
The remaining balance of each campers bank will be donated to our Camper Sponsorship Fund
unless requested back at the end of the week. A table will be set up at the closing ceremony where
you can receive your bank refund.


   Visitation
    While your camper is here at LGYC we ask that there are no visitors, for camper safety reasons, until
the Closing Ceremony at the end of your camper’s week. The reason for this is so that campers can
experience camp to its fullest and not be distracted. Visitors are only allowed in an emergency situation
and they must check in at the main office to maintain security on the grounds. Special visits must be
arranged with the Camp Director.
