Other Important Info:

·         Do you have a camper leaving early?  Following form is required in the YL office BY JUNE 1st - PERMISSION FOR CAMPER TO LEAVE CAMP.pdfPERMISSION FOR CAMPER TO LEAVE CAMP.pdf 

·         Electronics: Please prepare your kids – we do collect all electronics (inlcding apple watches so maybe best to leave at home) just before we reach the camp. Phones, iPods, Gaming equipment, etc. This is meant to give your kids the best experience possible!  They are all kept securely at camp and returned just before getting on the bus when we leave. They will not have time to charge them, so saving some juice for the way home is good! This freedom from devices is often some kids favorite part of the week after they get over the initial shock.

·         Electronics that students ARE allowed to bring – a camera, watch, and alarm.  ALL are optional since leaders keep track of time, take lots of pictures and a bell rings every morning!

·         Special Diet Needs:  Young Life always accommodates vegetarians and common food allergies (like nut/gluten) with other options. We keep this food in stock. Please include this special diet information on your health form. However, the uncommon allergies (milk protein, PKU) are more specialized and require advance planning. Please contact the ranch ONLY if you fall under that catagory of a uncommon allergies - WFR: (541) 489-3100​

**Note that the Creekside kitchen is a NUT FREE however, the snack shack is NOT. Tell your kids to be responsible of they purhase snacks.

·         Medicines: In accordance with current Oregon state law, any camper under the age of 18 participating in a summer Young Life Camp must check in all medications brought with them to camp to be administered by a member of the medical team.

o   All medicine checked in must be in its original container. The medical team cannot accept medicine that is not properly labeled.   

o   Medicine must be checked in on Day 1 to a member of the medical team between 6-7pm at the Infirmary located in the side of the Muddy Station.  

o   The camper MUST be present when checking in medication with the medical team. Have your camper ask were the medical station is after settling in. Campers will be asked for their birthdates to identify themselves. Questions pertaining to scheduled dosage, purpose of medication may need to be addressed with the camper.

o   Emergency medication such as epi-pens for allergic reactions, insulin for diabetics, and inhalers for asthmatics can be kept by the camper.  

o   Medicine will be administered during Infirmary 30 minutes before each meal only.   

o   Medicine MUST be picked up by the camper it belongs to after breakfast on the last day of camp at the Infirmary.  

·         A note about sick campers: If you have campers experiencing sickness or signs of impending sickness, please leave them at home. As we have experienced in the past, sickness spreads extremely quickly in a camp setting. Bringing sick campers will jeopardize all the people attending during your week. It's not worth the risk.
