First Aid Checklist
For the health and safety of your campers, the First Aid Station has suggested that each church bring with them a First Aid Kit for minor accidents or illnesses. Sponsors are encouraged to bring their campers to the First Aid Station for occurrences that cannot be properly cared for in the cabin.
Suggested First Aid Kit Items:
- Assorted bandages
- Aloe Vera or Benzocaine
- Adhesive tape
- Triple antibiotic ointment
- Sterile gauze squares, assorted sizes
- Benadryl or Cortaid cream
- Roller gauze – Kling
- Stool softener/laxative
- Mild pain reliever – Tylenol or Advil
- Fever thermometer
- Antacid – Mylanta or Maalox
- Insect repellent
- Skin cream or lotion
- Benadryl capsules, chewable tablets and/or liquid
When campers need medical attention at the First Aid Station, a church sponsor must accompany them. If illnesses or accidents are of a serious nature, patients may be sent to a hospital in a nearby town, but they should first report to the First Aid Station for a referral. Overnight non-emergency injuries, illnesses, or medical needs should be taken by the church sponsors to the hospital in Ardmore (no referral needed overnight).
Please observe camp office hours as much as possible. However, someone will be on 24-hour call for an emergency.
Emergencies (go to the Falls Creek Office between 10:15pm and 9:00am). It is suggested that non-emergency incidents or illnesses that occur after 10:15pm receive medical attention in Sulphur at Arbuckle Memorial Hospital/(580) 622-2161 or Ardmore at Mercy Memorial Health Center/(580) 223-5400
A release form must be completed for each student by a parent or guardian. All sponsors and cooks must also complete and submit a completed release form. All release forms will be filed in the First Aid Station immediately following registration on Monday. Please make sure that you make a second copy of your release forms to keep with you during the week of camp in case you have to go to the hospital or have problems traveling home on Saturday. The release forms held in the First Aid office will not be returned to you after you turn them in on Monday.
