At PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Stratford, Connecticut, you can receive a camp physical any day of the week! That’s right: Even if it’s the weekend before camp starts and you need the physical completed as soon as possible, you can turn to us for prompt service. One of our experienced medical providers will conduct the physical exam so that your child (or children) can start camp without delay.

The Reason for Camp Physicals

A camp physical is an examination by a medical professional that screens for underlying health conditions and ensures that a child is healthy enough to participate in camp activities, such as hiking, swimming, and canoeing. It also documents recent injuries or illnesses so that camp leaders understand which campers may have certain limitations. (For example, a camper who is healing from a sprained ankle may have to sit out on a hike.)

During a camp physical, a medical professional will:

  • Review the child’s medical and family history
  • Take vitals, such as temperature, blood pressure, and pulse
  • Record the child’s height and weight
  • Complete a vision screening
  • Examine the child’s heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, throat, and major joints

"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."
