Medical Support

Minor ailments are treated promptly by our athletic training staff.
 

Health Information

Parental Notification
We will attempt to contact the parent/guardian immediately by phone when a camper is referred to the Hospital for emergency treatment and prior to outside consultations.

Insurance Card
It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to obtain appropriate referrals/clearances from primary physicians and insurance carriers. All parents/guardians must include a copy (both sides) of all medical/dental/prescription cards in the event that a camper requires referral to an emergency room, outside consultant or needs a prescription filled. All excess charges may be billed to the parent/guardian.

Pre-existing Conditions
All conditions requiring specific restrictions from physical activities must be documented by the camper’s physician. Special circumstances aside, all campers will be expected to fully participate in all physical activities. Conditions not disclosed to the staff that could cause harm to the camper will not be the responsibility of the VFMA Camp.

Physical Exams
All campers (old and new) are required to have a physical exam completed after July 22, 2013**.

**If your camper will become a cadet immediately after camp, the physical exam must be completed after May 31, 2014. This is the standard for all new and returning cadets.

Immunization Record
Please, note that immunizations records are mandatory. Campers cannot be admitted without current immunizations.

TB test results are mandatory prior to arrival at camp. If the test is not completed, one will be done at an additional cost.

Medications
All campers must turn in any medication, whether over the counter or prescription, for review and safekeeping. There may be a few exceptions such as inhalers and some topical agents. Physician’s documentation to outline usage and dosage during course of medication should accompany all prescriptions.
