What if my camper needs medical attention?
We have a health care manager on site that is a certified EMT and/or Wilderness First Responder. All staff are trained in First Aid and CPR and at least one staff member on every trip and/or travel program is certified in Wilderness First Aid. We have a physician we can consult by phone and a local clinic and hospital service if needed. It takes at least 45 minutes to transport someone to the next level of care. In some situations it may take longer. We will notify parents as soon as possible if their child becomes ill or is injured seriously enough to be taken to the doctor, or to spend more than a few hours in the health center.
Can special foods be provided?
The camp cooks can meet most special needs. If your daughter has special dietary needs due to medical or religious reasons, please specify her needs in writing on her Health History form and contact the camp director prior to camp arrival.
What health and safety standards are maintained at Camp Menzies?
Camps must meet established standards for health and safety, site, program and personnel, which are set by state and local governments and Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. The camp staff is also trained in safety and emergency procedures.
Are campers covered by insurance?
All campers are covered by sickness and accident insurance. The cost is included in the camp fee.
Will my daughter need a physical examination to attend camp?
No. However, a current Health History form completed by the parents must be received in the program center 4 weeks prior to their camp session. Camp can be physically demanding-although a physical examination is no longer required to attend camp, we recommend that you discuss camp with your health care provider and be clear about any restrictions to your campers activities on the Health History form. Health History form will be available online. Click here for a Health History form.
