Does Your Child Need a Camp Physical in Newtown, CT?

It’s an all-too-familiar scenario: Your child needs a physical to participate in summer camp, but the pediatrician’s office is closed for the weekend. What do you do? You visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care, of course! We provide walk-in physical examinations for patients of all ages, and we have a facility conveniently located in Newtown, Connecticut, that’s open seven days per week. Our experienced practitioners will be able to provide the physical your child needs so that he or she is ready for camp.

What Is a Camp Physical?

Most summer camps require participants to receive a physical examination from a medical professional to ensure they are healthy enough to engage in typical camp activities. For example, camp leaders need to know if your child needs to be watched more closely during strenuous activities, such as hiking, due to an underlying condition. The physical examination will include taking your child’s vitals and evaluating his or her ears, nose, throat, lungs, heart, abdomen, joints, and vision. We’ll also learn about your child’s medical history and review his or her immunization record to determine if any shots need to be given. If so, there’s a good chance we can administer the shot during the camp physical for your convenience.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
