All information on the Health History and Parent Questionnaire forms will be kept strictly confidential and is requested solely for the purpose of providing your camper with the best care possible. Please be open and honest. We need to know anything that will help us give your camper the best care in their time of need.
We ask that a new Health History form be filled out annually.
If your camper has a pre-existing condition, illness or injury that s/he sustained prior to coming to camp, families will be responsible for supplying Mo-Ranch Summer Camp with any on-going medications or treatments the camper may be receiving. Families will be responsible for any costs associated with additional medications or treatments your camper may need for their pre-existing condition(s) while at Camp.
All medications must be in their original packaging with original prescription label. If prescription dosages or times have changed, there must be a written note from the prescribing physician as to the change. Over-the-counter medications must also be in their original packaging with a written note of dosages and times.
It is required that campers taking behavior modification medications for conditions such as ADD or ADHD continue taking their medications while at Camp. We also ask that campers have been on the current medication and dosage for at least one month prior to the start of their Camp session. While Summer Camp does provide more active, hands-on programming than most school situations, the longer days, challenging activities and intense social interactions of Summer Camp may over-stimulate or stress a child. Giving campers the tools they need to cope in the best way possible is the key to a successful camp experience.
Please ensure that you provide Mo-Ranch with copies of your camper's insurance policy card. Mo-Ranch Summer Camps' insurance carrier is Brotherhood Mutual. This policy is primary insurance coverage up to $250 for any injury or illness sustained while at Camp. If the cost of medical care for any injury or illness sustained while at Camp is over $250, the remaining portion of that medical expense will be applied toward your personal insurance policy.
Parents or guardians will be notified immediately in case of any major illness or injury to their camper. Any minor illnesses or injuries that occurred throughout the session will be noted when you go through check-out on Closing Day.
Campers not well enough to stay in Loma Linda will be supervised and cared for in our fully equipped Health Center. Campers needing additional care will be seen by our Camp Doctor in Kerrville, or in case of emergency, campers will be taken to Peterson Regional Medical Center in Kerrville.
