For Parents – Here’s What you Need to Know about Wilderness Trips
Getting your child ready for a wilderness trip is exciting. There is much to consider and many questions that arise as families move through the process. We’re here to help you every step of the way! This page contains most of the information that you’ll need.
START EARLY. We require all participants to have a physical exam performed within 12 months of their arrival at camp. Schedule your child’s appointment ASAP. Your doctor will need to send our Health Center a form confirming the exam and medically clearing the participant for camp. The doctor may use their own form or complete the form available for download online in your Chewonki CampMinder account on the Forms Dashboard. Here is the link to login. You can find the other health forms on the dashboard. Those in BOLD are required.
As always, you are welcome to call (207-882-7323) or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at any time!
