Medical staff will be onsite throughout the camp weekend. In the event of an emergency, campers will be transported by ambulance (note: all Minnesota ambulances are equipped with epinephrine, oxygen, and defibrillators), to Ridgeview Medical Center, which is 11.44 miles (16 minutes) from the camp.*
*In the very unlikely event of needing to transport a patient upon doctor’s orders, the hospital is also equipped with medical helicopters for patient transport to Children’s Hospitals in Minneapolis or St. Paul, or to Hennepin County Medical Center. Parents or guardians are responsible for any medical costs incurred as a result of injury or illness while their child is at camp. Accurate medical insurance information (carrier and policy number) is required by camp.
