Info For Parents

Child Protection Policy

Keeping our campers and staff safe is something that we take very seriously.  Our staff application process includes reference checks, a criminal record check, and interviews with each applicant.  Mishewah is a member of Plan to Protect. See our full policy here.

Medication

Medication refers to any substance an individual takes to improve their health and well-being.  This includes prescription medications, vitamins and supplements, natural remedies, and over the counter medications.

We require that anything that the camper brings to camp be given to the nurse for safekeeping in the Health Centre. The nurse will administer all medications at the proper time according to instructions

We require all medications to be in the original pharmacy containers with labels which indicate the camper’s name, dose, how and when the medication should be taken.  Please provide enough of each medication to last the entire week of camp. Any outdated medications or those not in their original containers will not be administered to any camper while they are in the care of Evergreen Christian Ministries.

Food Services/Dietary Needs

Our kitchen team works hard to provide delicious and healthy meals for our campers.  Food Allergies & Sensitivities are something we want to help your child with.  Please be sure to give complete details in the Health & Medical Form and send any necessary substitutions along.  We are unable to provide gluten or dairy free products, but will work with what the camper supplies to be sure they are cared for according to their needs. We encourage them to speak up for themselves and help the kitchen staff understand their situation.  Camp Mishewah does not claim to be a nut/peanut free environment because of the many individual campsites we have and the guests that camp there. However, we do keep nuts and peanuts out of our kitchen.

Special Needs

If your child has any physical, emotional or developmental delays, or behavioral issues of any kind, it is important that we are fully aware of these.  Please give us complete details so we can be prepared to support your child to the best of our abilities.
