If your student has special needs of the medical, physical, emotional, or dietary nature we encourage you to discuss your concerns with your child’s teacher. Please also feel free to contact Camp Green Meadows.
All medical concerns should be recorded on your student’s health history forms. Each week we have a registered nurse or EMT on campus to provide medical assistance as needed and administer all medications. If your student will be taking any medication during their stay at Camp Green Meadows, they must have a doctor’s note accompanying the medication. Any and all medications must be turned in to the nurse or your student’s teacher when you arrive at school to depart for Camp Green Meadows. Upon arrival, the nurse will review the medical forms of all students and communicate to the staff any specific concerns that the staff needs to be aware of.
Dietary needs should be recorded on all health forms as well as communicated directly with the Camp Green Meadows kitchen. Our meals are nutritious, “kid friendly,” and adhere to the state requirements for Free and Reduced Lunch. As a part of this program, children are required to have a certain combination of vegetables/fruits, grains, and protein on their plate. We can, however, provide non-meat protein alternatives for most meals, and we always offer additional fresh fruit for all students. If your student does have specific dietary issues, notifying us well in advance of your student’s visit will allow us to develop a plan for accommodating their special needs. For students with severe allergies or complex dietary concerns, we encourage parents to send alternative food to substitute out for our standard meals.
Please contact the kitchen by calling (559) 642-0123.
