Health & Wellness
Inclusion & Camper Care
Camp Livingston’s trained and licensed Camper Care Team supports campers with varying needs and are prepared to work with caregivers and professionals to provide a fulfilling camp experience. Please contact the Executive Director to discuss any reasonable accommodations that can be implemented for your child, including the opportunity to have a one-on-one staff member (limited availability) work with your child.
The Camper Care Team consists of two nurses and licensed social workers who are available 24/7. Our nursing staff administer prescriptions and over the counter medication, provide First Aid, and support the general wellness and physical health of campers and staff members.
At Camp Livingston, we understand that children who come to camp are growing and changing everyday. Camp Livingston social workers are experts in child development and are available to support the social and emotional wellness of all Camp Livingston campers. Our social workers coach campers through a variety of challenges, providing the care and guidance campers need to have their best camp experience.
When registering for camp, a copy of medical insurance card and prescription drug card are required. Parents are notified by camp staff if their child requires an overnight stay in the health center. If a child visits a doctor or if a prescription drug is deemed necessary, parents will be notified and billed for any co-pays or fees.
Camp Livingston is accredited by the American Camp Association. Waterfront staff are trained lifeguards, certified in First Aid and CPR. Many other camp staff hold CPR and First Aid certifications as well. At least one member of the Adventures Unlimited staff is also Wilderness First Aid or Responder certified. In addition, Camp Livingston complies with all Health Department regulations.
Emergency procedures & safety
All staff are trained with Camp Livingston’s Emergency Procedures and Safety Manual which covers safety procedures for severe weather, lock-down, fire, and other types of safety emergencies. Fire and weather drills maybe be held each session with campers.
Medication & CampMeds
Camper medication is kept in our Health Center under the supervision of the Camp Livingston nursing staff. Camp Livingston stocks most over the counter drugs (i.e. Tylenol, Benadryl, Ibuprofen, etc.) for as-needed purposes. The Health Center staff distributes medications daily during meal times and at bedtime.
To ensure that all daily medication is handled and administered in the safest possible way, Camp Livingston requires all camp families to use CampMeds. CampMeds specializes in pre-packaging medication for camps across the country, simplifying medication management and reducing error. All daily pill medications, vitamins, supplements, etc., must be ordered through CampMeds including over-the-counter (OTC or PRN) medications. Campers may not keep or carry medications of any kind themselves. Inhalers and epi-pens are the only exceptions. CampMeds includes a $55 fee.
CAMPMEDS MUST RECEIVE A CAMPER’S PRESCRIPTION AT LEAST 30 DAYS BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF CAMP IN ORDER TO AVOID A LATE FEE. CAMP LIVINGSTON WILL NOT ACCEPT MEDICATION ON THE DAY OF DROP OFF.
