Walk-In Camp Physicals for Patients in Ridgefield, CT
From buying bug spray, swimsuits, and other last-minute essentials, to labeling clothes and packing a duffel bag, prepping your child for summer camp can take a lot of time and effort. But don’t forget one of the most important steps: having your child attend a physical examination to ensure that he or she is healthy enough to participate in camp activities and identify any accommodations that may need to be made. Many camps require these physicals, and forgetting to get one before drop-off day could lead to tears for your child and frustration for you.
Luckily, if you’re in Ridgefield, Connecticut, or the surrounding area, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for the camp physical your child needs. Our physicals, which we offer on a walk-in basis, involve:
- Reviewing your child’s medical history and immunization record
- Asking questions about your family’s medical history
- Recording your child’s height, weight, and vitals (including temperature, pulse, and blood pressure)
- Performing a vision screening
- Checking your child’s ears, nose, throat, heart, lungs, abdomen, and major joints
We charge an $80 flat fee for camp physicals. In addition to this fee, please be sure to bring along any paperwork provided to you by your child’s camp, your child’s immunization record, your driver’s license, and your insurance card (if applicable).

If you’re in a time crunch, don’t worry about waiting for an appointment with your child’s pediatrician.
