Before & After Care
Camp Health Forms
  1. Safety and Accreditation
    The camp is fully licensed as a youth camp by the State Department of Health. As an additional precaution, all counselors are trained in CPR and First Aid. The swimming pool is supervised at all times by certified lifeguards. When going on field trips, contact is maintained at all times with the camp office by means of mobile communication.
  2. Personal Property
    The Camp does not take responsibility for any personal items brought to camp. Personal sports equipment such as baseball bats, hockey sticks, sports balls, etc will be stored by the counselor and used under staff supervision. ABSOLUTELY NO illegal substances or weapons of any kind will be allowed on camp grounds. Camp reserves the right to conduct searches when we feel necessary.
  3. Dress Code
    The wearing of a CGI t-shirt is mandatory and will be available for purchase prior to the start of camp, together with the baseball cap. We suggest purchasing 2-3 shirts at $5 each.
  4. Medication
    The nurse will be responsible for all health care and for administering medications. All medication to be administered during camp hours must be clearly marked with camper's name. A separate note containing dosage instruction and parent signature must be sent as well. Nurse: Mrs. Dale Susan Wallace R.N. Camp Physician: Dr. Ofer Shustik
  5. Camper Release
    Parents wishing to have their child released during camp to anyone other than themselves or their designated substitute must make prior arrangements with the camp Director.
  6. Security Procedures
    Every counselor will be in constant communication with the main office via walkie-talkies. Please call the day before if you know your child will not attend camp. We request a phone call by 8:00 a.m. if absence is unexpected. In case of a major emergency, children will remain on campgrounds and will wait for parents to pick them up.
