Our number one concern is the health and safety of each camper. We have registered nurses onsite 24-hours per day and each counselor is a trained as a Wilderness First Responder or in Wilderness First Aid. All KSS staff also go through extensive training in the Colorado State licensing rules, American Camp Association standards, and additional training on the specific risk management policies and procedures of Keystone Science School.
We partner with parents and physicians to provide medications to campers which are specifically identified on the completed paperwork. This includes prescription medicine, vitamins, over the counter medications, or homeopathic remedies. At the start of any camp session, we will collect any medications to be distributed. Please make sure that all current medications are listed on your campers medication authorization form and are turned over to KSS in its original packaging.
Upon arrival at camp, your camper will undergo a short health screening and visit with our registered nurses. We do this to ensure the overall health of the camp community. We will ask about recent injuries, how they feel, and do a non-invasive lice check.
