On Opening Day each camper will receive a health screen from our camp nurses and doctor. Nurses will take each camper’s temperature and also do a check for lice. Please do not bring your child to camp if he has had a fever any time in the previous 24 hours. Boys must be fever free for 24 hours without medication to enter a cabin. Any boy with a fever is required to be quarantined in our camp infirmary. This is a very hard way to begin camp, thus we recommend he stay with you until fever free. Please call our office and leave a message for the nurse. They will call you and consult about the best time for your son to come to camp.
Do not bring your son to camp with live lice or nits (lice eggs). Upon discovery of either at the health screen our nurses will consult with the directors and notify the parents. Alpine has arrangements with professional lice services for complete removal. Cost for this service will be the sole responsibility of the parent. In addition, Alpine may bill a processing fee to your account, covering laundry and transportation costs.
Please avoid this by thoroughly checking your son prior to his arrival. A camper must be free of all lice and nits to enter a cabin.
Campers are not allowed to keep ANY medication in their cabin. Medications brought to camp will be stored and administered by a nurse at the Infirmary. Please bring all medications to the Lodge on Opening Day. Please do not leave it with your son or his counselors.
Please note: Because we have a very structured schedule, children who are on medication for ADD/ADHD often have a better camp experience if they stay on their medication while at camp.
For safety reasons, campers may not wear piercings of any kind at camp.
