Nurse's Corner

We take every precautions to ensure the safety of all of our campers and staff.  Please communicate any special health issues (diabetes, seizure disorder, musculoskeletal issues, asthma, life-threatening allergies, food intolerances /special diet, autism spectrum disorder, behavioral or emotional issues, or any other condition) to the PDC nurses prior to the first day of camp. 
Any health issue that requires special attention is discussed with your child's Unit Leader but it is also very important for the parent/guardian to communicate with the Unit Leader throughout camp with regard to special treat days and food prep and activities.  We are a nut-safe camp in that Pilgrim Day Camp does not provide any food or ingredients with nuts or made in a facility.  However, campers are allowed to bring their own food such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and may bring their own birthday treat to share.  If your child has a food allergy or intolerance, we suggest the parent/guardian bring their own child's alternative treats, labeled with their name and group, and can be kept in the nurse's office for these occasions.
A PDC nurse will be available at the health office on a specified afternoon/evening the week preceding opening day for parents/guardians to discuss these conditions and bring any necessary medications and related paperwork.  It is strongly recommended you come at this time, as Open House day tends to be very busy with many parents waiting to speak with the nurse.  
You can now upload your immunization form directly to your child's registration page.. Once logged into your account, click the  "view registration" tab from there you will be able to upload your child's immunization records. Note* we will not accept mailed in health forms.
