All Triple C Camp staff members are put through First Aid Orientation. Our Health Care Specialists 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 indicated in the Registration process 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 Camper’s Health
COVID-19 guidelines: Please see our COVID-19 specific section.
General childhood communicable diseases have always been a concern to us in camping. Illnesses such as chickenpox, conjunctivitis, strep throat, and others occur. 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 any communicable disease during the season you are required to notify us IMMEDIATELY. This communication will allow us to notify the applicable families that may also be affected. Your family will have anonymity.
Staying Home When Appropriate
Campers need to stay home when:
- They are showing ANY medical symptoms such as: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or small, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea.
- Have contact with a person with COVID-19 within the last two weeks.
- If they have personally tested positive for COVID-19.
- Have contact with a person with any communicable disease.
Except under unusual circumstances medication should not be sent to camp. If medication is to be administered at camp or held at camp for emergency purposes (ie. Epi Pens, inhalers, Benadryl), please follow these guidelines:
Prescription and nonprescription medication shall be given only with a completed written authorization form. 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. No loose or unpackaged meds will be given.
