Health & Food Services
All Triple C Camp staff members are put through First Aid Orientation. Our Health Care Specialist will attend to minor scratches, cuts, and bruises. There is also a Registered Nurse on site. If additional care is needed, campers will be taken to UVA Health System Hospital unless the injured campers group is away from camp. In the case of minor illness, we will make your child comfortable and call you to arrange a pick up at camp. If parents intend for someone other than persons mentioned on the Registration Form to pick up their child at any time, they must submit the names, addresses, and phone numbers of these individuals to the camp office in writing, via bus mail, email or fax.
Your Campers Health
Communicable diseases and exposure to them is a concern to us in camping. We must follow the Virginia Department of Health's Communicable Disease Reference Chart For School Personnel, in determining communicable exclusion. If your camper, or any member of your household, is exposed to or contracts a communicable disease during the season you are required to notify us within 24 hours. This communication will allow us to notify the applicable families that may also be affected. Your family will have anonymity.
Except under unusual circumstances medication should not be sent to camp. If medication is to be administered at camp or if an Asthma Inhaler must be kept at camp for emergency purposes, please follow these guidelines:
Prescription and nonprescription medication shall be given only with written authorization from the parent. Medications to be administered for more than three days in a row must be accompanied with written authorization from the child's physician and parent. Written authorization must include child's name, medication name, the dosage amount, the time(s) to be given, authorization names, signatures, and date of authorization. All medications must be in their ORIGINAL CONTAINER with the current prescription label or direction label attached. Medication must be labeled with the child's name, medication name, the dosage amount and the time or times to be given. No loose or unpackaged meds will be given.
The Sun - It Can Be a Hot Item!
Triple C Camp has established some specific policies that protect our campers from the effects of exposure to the sun's rays and still allows them to enjoy the out-of-doors. Our staff is vigilant and wants to help our campers protect themselves by doing the following:
Wear a hat!
Wear protective clothing--light colored and loose.
Wear waterproof sunscreen-minimum SPF 15 and apply 30-60 minutes before exposure. Remember ears, tops of feet, and the neck. Use sunscreen in hazy, cloudy, and foggy weather. Re-apply sunscreen regularly.
Our staff will help/reapply sunscreen to campers K-3rd grade, we will verbally remind older campers throughout the day.
Lunches & Snacks
Triple C Camp provides a morning and afternoon snack each day. Lunch for all campers is USDA approved. Entrees include burgers, pasta, chicken nuggets, hot dogs and other foods that kids like. Vegetables, fruit, chips, and drinks complement the meal. PB & J sandwiches are a choice everyday. Refrigeration is not available for lunches from home. Teen Scene (6th-8th grade) campers must bring a non-perishable lunch for days they are out of camp Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Menus are available upon request.
