Health Screening

Health Screening

Saturday, August 4 from 10am-noon

State law requires each camper complete a Health Screening to attend camp. We offer a complimentary Health Screening Day at The Bridge Bible Church on Saturday.  At this Health Screening, a nurse will ask a few simple questions to ensure your student shows no sign of sickness before camp.

We will have one nurse available on Sunday for those who absolutely can not make it Saturday. You must have a legitimate reason for missing the main health screening, please do not skip unless it is necessary. We appreciate your understanding.

If your child does not receive the complementary Health Screening we offer, you will be charged a $10 fee for a screening to be completed by a Hume staff member at camp. Please don’t send a child to the Health Screening with a fever, they will not be allowed to attend camp. If your student is ill, give us a call to let us know as soon as possible for the best chance of a partial refund.

All prescription medications must be entered into the Hume system when filling out the Hume Lake Medical Form online. Medications not listed in the Hume system will not be allowed at camp. When you come to the Health Screening on Saturday, August 4th, nurses will take your medication and match it to what was entered online. Please bring all medications in a one-gallon zip lock bag labeled as follows:

CAMPER NAME
Ponderosa
The Bridge Bible Church
August 5-11

It is the campers responsibility to take their medication. Staff will announce a reminder at every meal. If there is anything you would like us to be aware of or remind your camper, send an email to Cooper@thebridgebiblechurch.com

We will not be accepting any over the counter medications. Hume Lake has a supply of all common over the counter medications on hand if any needs arise.

If you would like to send letters/packages to your camper, please mail them prior to or within the first couple days of camp to:

*CAMPER NAME*
Ponderosa Week 1- Hume Lake Christian Camp
64144 Hume Lake Rd. Hume, CA 93628

Also, our Counselors give this entire week to your students. Some even take the week off work. If you would like to show your appreciation by making a “Care Package” for your student’s Counselor, please bring it to the Health Screening (with your students’ name on it so we can match it to their cabin).

If, for any reason, you are bringing your camper up late or picking them up early, please notify Cooper as soon as possible. It will severely delay our departure or return if we do not know of these special circumstances in advance. Campers who are checked out early must also follow a specific check-out procedure. Please let us know at least one week prior to departure.
We do not allow students to use phones on the bus to camp or at Hume Lake. If your student brings a cell phone, it will be securely stored in a locked safe during camp. Students will be able to use their phones on the trip home. Students will be able to call or text when we are 20 minutes out or if we are going to be late for any reason.
