2023 Illness and Injury Policies and Protocols
Thank you for doing your part to keep your child and the entirety of camp healthy and safe. Your child's health and safety is our number one priority.
Mars Hill Cycling Camp is dedicated to being as transparent as possible regarding camp’s operations, especially as it pertains to camp’s planning, processes, and procedures regarding illnesses like Covid-19 and other illnesses and injuries.
Campers must have and provide proof of current health insurance.
We encourage all campers for two weeks prior to camp arrival to avoid exposure to illness and generally to do everything possible to arrive at camp healthy, happy and fit. This is a key strategy to limit illnesses and injuries at camp.
Do not show up to camp with symptoms indicative of Covid, the flu, a cold, or any other communicable disease, nor with an illness or injury that would prevent normal riding and camp activities. We can discuss options (e.g. a camp fee rollover) should your child need to miss camp due to last minute illness or injury. We will work with you to provide the best options for your family.
Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medications
All prescribed and over-the-counter medications must be disclosed to staff before campers are admitted to camp. Staff needs to be aware of any and all medications and how/when a camper will administer them. Campers must be able to self-administer their own medications.
Getting Sick During Camp
If a camper develops symptoms of any communicable disease or illness, including but not limited to Covid-19, influenza, strep throat, food poisoning, etc., the camper and/or the parent/guardian is obligated to inform staff as soon as possible. If the illness is considered highly contagious, putting other campers at risk, the camper will be isolated to their room. Parents/guardians will be notified to consult with on any diagnostic or treatment options. Parents/guardians should be prepared to pick up their camper within 24 hours after notification of onset of symptoms. Campers are required to have a parent or guardian that can reach their child within 24 hours should the need arrive.
