Health Care and Safety
Ensuring the health and safety of your child while they are at camp is of the utmost importance to us. Our staff participate in extensive safety training workshops pre-season. We have a Registered Nurse who is on site 24/7 throughout the summer. We also have a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant on our medical team. Our on call Camp Physician, Dr. Delboy, has his practice in nearby Chestertown. We also have the excellent facilities of the Chester River Hospital Center in Chestertown which can be reached quickly if necessary. All of our staff are certified in CPR, First Aid, Lifeguard Training and are trained to use our AED. We have staff that are certified Water Safety Instructors, US Sailing Association certified, and USA Waterski members. All of our power boat drivers are licensed by the USCG. We also have emergency equipment on site, including EpiPens, Albuterol Inhalers, AmbuBags, Oxygen and an AED.

If you prefer to send the forms via snail mail: ATTN Health Dept., Echo Hill Camp, 13655 Bloomingneck Rd., Worton, MD 21678
Please note that we must have a copy of your child's immunization history attached to the medical forms. In addition, we must have all information regarding the medication that your child will take on a daily basis and/or as needed printed clearly on the medical form. This includes all prescription medications, vitamins and OTC medications/supplements.
For those families that used CampMeds in 2018, we are NO LONGER contracting with this company. When checking in your child on arrival day you will meet with the camp Registered Nurse and hand in all prescription medications, vitamins, and OTC medications/supplements. Please note that ALL prescription medications must be in the original bottle with your child's name, dosage and treating doctor on the label. Vitamins and OTC medications/supplements must also be in the original bottles. If your child has emergency medications (i.e., EpiPens, inhalers, nebulizers, glucagon emergency kit) you will be able to discuss the treatment procedures for your child in the case of a medical emergency.
