Please fill out Medical History Form before your child attend camp. Campers who are missing the health form will not be admitted into camp.
General Health Information
Camp DaKaNi is licensed annually by the Oklahoma City-County Health Department and the Fire Department. Every effort is made to ensure your child’s safety while at camp. The Directors are trained annually in Red Cross First Aid & CPR.
Phone contact with parents or guardians is established in an emergency. Each person's health form contains contact information, as well as designates alternate contacts if the parents/guardians cannot be reached. This process is initiated by the Director and/or the lead health-care provider but can be delegated to an appropriate staff member. Since the program has no way of determining what each person considers an emergency, the general camp practice is to contact parents when there is concern about a person's health and/or when a situation is not progressing as expected. If a staff member is unable to contact parent or guardian, alternative emergency contacts will be called. If voicemail is available, a message will be left. All contact, successful and unsuccessful, is documented on the individual's health form.
All medications must be stored in their original containers or clearly labeled with the pharmacy Rx label if it is a prescription. Check the medications in with the Camp Staff on Monday. It will be the parent’s responsibility to pick up medication on Friday. Campers are not allowed to keep their medications unless there is written permission from the doctor and the parents.
All medications must be listed on the Camper Health Form.
Discipline and Behavior Information
Rules of camp and instructions from staff are expected to be followed by all campers. Repeated disruptive and/or disrespectful behavior towards other campers or staff will not be tolerated. If a child is dismissed from camp for disruptive behavior, it is likely that the child will be asked not to return.
Parents are expected to review the Campers Expectations section of the website with your child before camp begins.
Safety is Camp DaKaNi’s top priority. Camp DaKaNi Staff are trained in the camp intruder procedure. All efforts are made throughout the day to insure that camp is secure and campers are safe.
Severe Weather Information
Camp will still take place on rainy or stormy days. Camp DaKaNi has several buildings and covered shelters where campers can continue to participate in group activities until the weather clears.
