Safety is a cornerstone of Girl Scouting. We will continually update
our COVID-19 guidelines and safety procedures to decrease the risk of
exposure to COVID-19. We are taking special precautions to keep our
campers and staff safe and healthy, including increased cleaning
measures, reduced capacities, adjusted program and operational
procedures, and detailed training for our summer camp and full-time staff.
Camp plans are subject to change based on all of these factors, but
our current plan is to operate camp in summer, 2022, based on the
schedules described on our website. Any changes to these schedules
will be communicated via our website, email, and social media.
Camper Health Forms
A medical exam is required only if the camper has had surgery,
serious illness, an injury that has limited her activity, or has been
hospitalized in the last year. Complete the health and medical history
form and submit in your Camp Doc account at least three weeks prior to
the start date of your campers session. If a camper will attend more
than one Girl Scout camp this summer, please list all camp names and
sessions on the health form. Make an appointment with your family
doctor for a physical or to obtain copies of current immunization and
exam records early.
No child may attend camp without submitting a health form.
Health Center Staff (HCS) will work with your camper’s medication
needs at camp. Questions about medications should be raised with the
camp prior to the child’s arrival. To ensure a smooth transition, we
recommend that your child continue the medications she needs during
the school year at summer camp.
If prescription medications are brought to camp, you must complete
the medication section in your Camp Doc account. The container must be
in their original containers showing the prescription number,
patient’s name, date filled, physician’s name, name of medication, and
directions for use. Any camper coming to camp with a prescription
Epi-pen® or inhaler must bring two of either, one for the infirmary
and one for the unit. The HCS dispenses medication according to the
directions. If a camper refuses to take prescribed medications, this
refusal is documented in the health log and the parent/guardian is notified.
Camper with Disabilities
Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada makes every attempt to offer summer
camp opportunities to all girls. If you have a camper with a
disability, please call 702-385-3677 to discuss how we can make your
camper's experience one that is exciting, appropriate, and fulfilling.
The information that you share with us about your camper will be held
confidential, shared only as HIPAA allows, and in accordance with your wishes.
Care of Mildly Ill Camper
Staff is responsible for reporting any signs of illness to the
health center staff (HCS) who will assesses each situation. The HCS
may administer over-the-counter medications and medical care. If the
HCS determines the camper should be sent home or seen by the
healthcare consultant, they will inform the camp director and
arrangements are made. In both situations, the campers caregiver will
be contacted as soon as possible.
