At Forest Lake Camp, the health and safety of your child is always our priority. We recognize that having your child away from home when they are sick or injured is a trying moment for a parent. For those campers with daily medication or medical support needs, our nursing staff is here to insure they receive the same consistent care they would receive at home.
Should a child become ill or accidentally get injured, we have an 8-bed infirmary with a resident nurse on site 24 hours a day. Our resident nurse works with a support team of 1-2 additional nurses to insure continuity of care whether for daily medications or a short term illness or injury. The nurse will be in the infirmary during posted hours and is on-call at all other times.
Upfront Medical Checks
The process of insuring your child’s health begins immediately upon their arrival to camp when our nurses will perform a health check as part of your check-in process. During that check-in the nurse will check for the general health of your camper and any daily medications can be discussed at that time. All daily medications, both prescription and non-prescription, will be administered by our camp nurses.
For more serious ailments there is a modern, brand new full service health center 10 minutes away in Warrensburg and a hospital less than 25 minutes away in Glens Falls.
