HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION
If your child has any known health problems in any of the categories below, please be sure to note these items on their health forms so that we can do our best to accommodate them while they are staying with us at camp. However, if your child has significant needs and you are unsure whether they would get the most out of camp as a result, please call us to discuss the situation. We want everyone to have an equal opportunity for fun at Masse Moro. All buildings are accessible.

Common Health Related Issues That May Arise During Camp:
Our counselors supervise all activites and do their best to remind and encourage campers to use insect spray, sunscreen, and to wear appropriate footwear for each activity. Water is always available to stay hydrated during group sports or activities, and as needed throughout the day.
Campers will be very active during these two weeks. One of the most important items a child can bring are a good pair of tennis shoes. They will be hiking, playing sports, and engaging in activities that will require them to have appropriate active footwear. Also, if your child has any equipment that they must wear during sports activities, please send these items with them.
Each summer, we employe a medical professional, whether a Registered Nurse (RN), Certified Nurse Practitioner (CNP), or Emergency Medical Technician.
This individual is responsible for assessing any health related issues for campers or staff, and will transport individuals to and from the clinic or hospital should a trip be deemed necessary.
Our Health Professionals request that you send your campers with the following:
Basic toiletry items including soap, deoderant, shampoo, and feminine hygiene products (even if you think they don't need them yet!)
Please send a full 2-week supply of prescription medication with your camper and check in with the Health Aide upon arrival. It is helpful to include a brief note detailing specific dosage requirements for our health staff. Please note that it can be very difficult to fill prescriptions during the camp session.
It is not necessary to send over-the counter products for nausea, pain relief, cold and flu symptoms, allergies, etc. We keep an adequate supply of these items to provide to campers, as needed, as determined by our health professional.
In Case of Emergency:
Staff carry walkie talkies and cell phones with them at all times to communicate any health issues, emergencies, unidentified visitors, and weather emergencies.
Camp buildings are equipped with smoke alarms and fire extinguishers. Our group has established fire drill and tornado drill procedures in the unlikely event that such an emergency would occur.
In the event of severe weather or power outages, we gather all of the campers in the main building where they eat meals, have lanterns and candles, and activities at the ready to keep everybody occupied.
In the event of a tornado warning, there is a shelter below the shower house to accomodate campers and staff underground.
Of course, Emergency Professionals will always be notified as needed by calling 911.
Camp Staff and Volunteers:
All of our staff and volunteers are subject to a full criminal background check which includes felony and misdemeanor charges as well as sex offenses.
Due to the nature of our program, campers and staff are always scheduled to be somewhere. As a result, it is easy to determine if someone is wandering around on the camp site that isn't supposed to be there. If this occurs, they will be asked to leave immediately.
