The Summer at KEY Health Office is a place where students who become ill or suffer minor injuries at Camp may briefly rest while a decision is made whether they should remain at Camp or go home. The Health Office is staffed from 8:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., June 17-August 2 by a camp nurse. The nurse is responsible for administering minor first aid to campers, and contacting medical professionals and/or parents in case of serious illness or injury.
From time to time, the nurse must determine whether to send a child home. In such cases the child’s health, as well as the risk to the other members of the Camp community, is considered. When it is determined that a child cannot remain in Camp, the parents, or an alternate person designated on the Registration Form will be contacted and must pick up the child within one half hour. For parents and alternates who are unable to meet this requirement, back up transportation plans are essential.
Medication policy: Parents are encouraged to arrange for medication to be administered at home when possible. If medication MUST be taken at Camp, a Request to Administer Medication Form, identifying the medication and detailing the dosage, frequency and purpose must be turned in to the camp nurse. This form is also available from the camp office and/or camp nurse. If you need a form before camp begins, please call 410-263-9231 x1204 and the school nurse will mail one to you.

The Camp provides students with Advil, Tylenol or Benadryl, when necessary, if permission is given on the Registration Form, which will be filled out as part of the registration process.
Immunization records: As long as your camper is currently enrolled in a public or private school in Maryland, simply supply us with the name of the school. If your camper is not currently enrolled in a public or private school in Maryland, we must have a copy of their immunization records showing their immunizations are up to date. If the camper is exempt from any immunization on medical or religious grounds, please provide us with theImmunization Form signed by either a licensed physician indicating that the immunization is medically contraindicated, or the parent guardian indicating that they object to immunizations for religious reasons. Campers are required to be up to date with their tetanus shot. The date they last received this is required on the Registration Form. Without this, a camper may not begin camp.
