Support a Girl to Attend!
On the request of parents whose daughters previously attended we are giving families, organizations, and individuals the opportunity to support our scholarship fund.

When filling out paperwork please keep in mind the following:
HEALTH HISTORY FORM: A health history form must be filled out and signed by the parent/guardian before girls attend camp. A health EXAM is NOT required! If girls have been hospitalized or have been under a Doctor’s care for an illness or injury within the past year that could affect their camp experience, we suggest you have your doctor evaluate the youth and advise you and the camp of any limitations or situations we should be aware of.
OVER THE COUNTER & PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS: It is a state law that all medications (including over the counter ones) be kept for the girl by a designated facilitator and camp nurse. This includes things like Tylenol, medicated creams, medicated throat lozenges etc. All medications should be listed on the health history medication sheet, labeled with the girl’s name, and placed in there original containers in a plastic ziplock bag.
Prescription medications must be current, in original container, and prescribed for the girl. If you want the participant to have a different dose or take it at a different time then the label indicates you must sign a note indicating the change. If a girl needs someone to give an injection please notify the facilitator ahead of time. We will be at an outdoor facility which may trigger allergies. It is important to send inhalers, breathing machines etc. EVEN IF SHE HAS NOT HAD A PROBLEM recently. We will call you if your child/minor has a health issue that requires a doctor’s visit, the need to return home, or we need your input to help solve.
ACCOMMODATIONS/ALTERNATIVE FORMATS/DIETARY NEEDS: It is extremely important that facilitators are aware of any accommodations that may be needed by the participant. We ask for accommodation requests ahead of time so we can ensure full participation of each girl and do our best to help meet the needs of every girl attending. Some examples of accommodations include: wheelchair access, ASL interpreter, service dog, ability to access snacks throughout day, large print font, assistance with transfers, vegetarian meals, sugar free foods, etc. Please list any accommodations requests on the accommodation form. If we are unable to provide or have any questions regarding the requested accommodations, we will contact you. Personal Assistants (PA’s) will be provided by MDRC and will be available at all times throughout the event. They are available to assist with daily activities such as transferring, toileting, eating, dressing, etc. All Personal Assistants will be Young Adult Women that have had background checks.
