Every summer we work hard to prevent the spread of communicable diseases. With the appearance of COVID-19, we updated many of our health and safety protocols to take the best possible care of our camp community. We will continue many of these protocols to keep our community healthy in future summers as well.
We understand the importance of thorough communication and are committed to keeping you informed in a thoughtful and transparent manner before, during, and after your daughter’s session. We will contact you if there is ever a health issue that affects your daughter’s camp experience. This would include: if your camper spends the night at the Health Hut, is prescribed a prescription or over-the-counter medication on a scheduled basis, needs to visit a doctor in town for x-rays or lab work, or if she is unable to participate in scheduled camp activities due to illness or injury.
During Camp: You can reach us directly at the Health Hut with any questions regarding your daughter’s health via phone: 828-693-9841 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prior to Opening Day: please contact us with questions or to discuss any health concerns you might be dealing with at home. You can reach us through the camp office: 828-693-3182 or email or .
Greystone encourages our campers to try many different foods that they may not eat at home, and we are successful because they are surrounded by encouraging friends and staff. We encourage you to check out our information on how we support and handle food allergies during the summer.
ADHD, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, food issues, cutting, self-harm, etc.
Your daughter’s mental, emotional, and social health is just as important to us as her physical health. We want her to have the best experience possible this summer: to have fun, to feel supported, and to be successful here at Greystone. In order for us to do this well, it is very important that you let us know before camp about any past or current struggles your daughter has had with her mental, emotional, or social health.
If you are wondering if something is worth mentioning, please go ahead and contact us, even if you don’t think it will affect her time at camp. Mental health concerns are very common, and we want to take the best possible care of your daughter. Our hope and expectation is that camp will be nothing but fun for her, but if something does arise, having this information ahead of time will make all the difference.
A note about ADHD: Because we have a very structured schedule, children who are on medication for ADD/ADHD often have a better experience if they stay on their medication at camp. If you have any questions or concerns, or have made any recent medication changes, please contact us prior to your daughter’s session.
We will screen campers for lice, as well as any other health concerns, on Opening Day. Campers will have their heads checked by a professional lice service, and any cases found will be treated by the professional service that day. Parents will be notified regarding the treatment, and your credit card on file will be charged. Please have your daughter checked (by someone who knows what they are looking for) BEFORE she comes to camp, and let us know if she or anyone in the family has been treated for lice in the 6 months prior to camp. Having your daughter checked and treated prior to camp can prevent an expensive treatment and missing out on any Opening Day cabin fun!
