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.
