Built into all 2018 CCCA Camper Application Forms and the CampDoc.com online Camper Registration system are the Camper Medical/Health Profile forms which must be completed as part of the registration process.
Revised Camp Application Forms - Effective March 2017, a separate Camp Application and set of Medical Forms must be submitted for each Camper regardless of age, including each individual attending Family Camps and other multi-generational camps/retreats as a family group. This represents part of a major upgrade of our Camper Registration Process and Medical/Health History Questionnaire. The new required Medical / Health History Forms are a scaled-down version of the Medical Forms recommended by the American Camping Association and are similar in scope and detail to those used nationwide by Scout and YMCA camps. All forms are safeguarded by the CCCA and the Camp Event Directors and their staff members.
These two new Medical / Health History Forms (#1 and #2) are designed 1) to assist Event Directors in planning activities suitable to Campers’ abilities and for safer on-site medication distribution, 2) to prepare Event Directors and Counselors to assist Campers with special needs, 3) to assist the camp/center staff to prepare menus to meet growing food allergy issues, and 4) to facilitate emergency responses (if needed). This information is used solely for the safety of the Camper and other participants of the camp. Please note that:
The Immunization History section of Medical Form #1 is now only required for Campers who are age 18 or younger.
Health Form #2, which is signed by a medical professional, is needed only when a Camper is now or will likely be under active treatment by a Physician, Psychologist, Social Worker, Pastoral Counselor, or other Therapist at the start of the camp event. It is critical that the CCCA Camp Director know if a Camper has a condition that could become critical during the camp period (e.g., heart condition, asthma, infection) or other illness that can impact the safety of other campers if not properly monitored by the Camper and the Staff working together.
