Pre-Camp Meeting / Health Screens

Thursday, February 13th/ 5:30 – 7 pm

This is a mandatory meeting for students and counselors attending camp. At this meeting, we will offer complimentary Health Screens and answer any questions regarding camp, transportation, activities, cabin assignments and counselors! 
*State law requires that your camper complete a mandatory Health Screen. Without this screening, students will not be allowed to attend camp. The Bridge offers a complimentary screening at the Pre-Camp Meeting where we will ask a few simple questions to ensure your student shows no sign of illness.
If your child does not receive this complementary screening, you will be charged a $10 fee for a screening to be completed by a Hume staff member. Please do not send a child to the Health Screen with a fever, they will not be allowed to attend camp. If your student is ill, give us a call to let us know.
