 Top 10 Strategies for Mitigating Risk of Covid-19

For Summer 2021, we are monitoring federal and state regulations and will update our policies when we more information from them. As always, your camper’s health and safety will continue to be a top priority.

Medical Staff

Each week of the summer, our Health Center is staffed with at least two medical personnel. These individuals are highly qualified in their field and are Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, or Doctors. During their term, they live on-site in our Health Center and are on-call 24 hours a day.

Camp Cho-Yeh also has a Licensed Professional Counselor as part of the team to assist our campers and staff with any mental health concerns that may arise.

The Health Center

The Health Center is located centrally in camp across the road from the Dining Hall.

The safety and health of your camper is very important to us, as it is to you. We are located within 5 miles of CHI St. Luke’s Health Hospital and have an emergency vehicle ready for use at all times. We have nearby urgent-care facilities for non-emergency situations that we can take to campers if the need arises.

Medical Policies

Cho-Yeh abides by all medical policies set forth by state regulations and the American Camp Association.

Medication is distributed at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime. All prescription medication MUST be brought in prescription containers for the specified camper. Over-the-counter medications are given at the discretion of the camp medical staff and is provided by Camp Cho-Yeh at no additional cost.
