Medical Emergencies

Should a camper require medical treatment at a clinic or hospital, a parent/guardian will be contacted immediately and asked to promptly come and get his/her camper.  If that is not possible or help is needed sooner, the camper will be transported by ambulance to the appropriate medical facility.  A parent/guardian or other adult family member will be required to meet the camper at the clinic/hospital.  Once a family member arrives, the camper will be turned over to his/her care.  Oakcrest contact information will be given to the parent/guardian or other family member, so that he/she can contact the camp and inform them as to the camper’s condition and whether or not the camper will be returning to Oakcrest.  If the medical problem is resolved in time for the camper to finish her stay at Oakcrest, she is welcome to return, but the family must provide transportation.
