Health & Safety FAQ's:

What happens if my child gets sick or injured while at camp?
It is our hope that every camper will remain healthy and safe, allowing them to fully enjoy their
camp experience. Just in case though, Lake Lavon Camp’s Health Center is staffed with a
medical professional throughout every camp session. Our camp nurse resides on-site for the
entirety of the week and is on-call 27/7.

What is my child takes prescription medication?
All prescription medications can be sent to camp and turned into the camp nurse at the time of
check-in. These medications must be brought within their original bottle, labeled with the
recipients name. When packing prescription medication, we ask parents to place their child’s
medicine within a Ziplock bag that is clearly labeled with his/her name. Medication is never to be
kept within you child’s dorm, and church leaders are provided specific instructions to ensure this
rule is not violated for the safety of all campers.

Lake Lavon camp asks that all non-prescription medication such as: Tylenol, Advil, melatonin,
multi-vitamins, etc. be kept at home during your child’s time at camp.

What if my child has a food allergy?
Lake Lavon Camp is able to accommodate diets for nut, gluten, and dairy free allergies as well
as vegetarians. If your child has a severe allergy (any allergy that require an epi-pen), we ask
that you pack meals for them to bring to camp.

What if my child is not a strong swimmer?
Many of the activities at Lake Lavon are water-based. Because of this, each camper is required
to take a swim test on their first day. Once they complete the test, they will receive a color-
coded bracelet that indicates their swimming ability. If they are unable to pass the test or appear
to be a weak swimmer, they will be required to wear a lifejacket while in the pool to ensure their
safety. Life jackets are required in both the swim lake and lake front for all ages, regardless of
