Health Information and Meals

Health Form

2017 Health Form
(if the Health Form is not printing correctly you might need to open it in another program)

Everyone must have the health form completed and returned to the camp at least 2 weeks prior to your arrival at camp. If you have misplaced your health form, you can download the form at the top of the page. Campers who do not have either a completed health form on file or complete a health form upon arrival and will not be allowed to stay.

General Health

Campers should be in good health upon arriving at camp, since the programs can be physically demanding. Campers exposed to a contagious disease prior to camp should contact the camp in order to be rescheduled for a different session.

Each camper should bring from home or purchase from the Allegro Shop a bottle for water.  IMC recommends everyone consume adequate fluids while at camp, even when the weather is cool.  A formula to calculate the amount of daily fluid consumption is posted at the Nurse’s Station.

Parents/Guardians will be notified by phone when there is a concern about a camper’s health.

Medication – Prescription & Over-the-Counter

In compliance with the American Camp Association Standards, a camper’s prescription and over the counter medications must be stored under lock and key and are to be dispensed by the Camp Nurse from the Nurse’s Station.  Exceptions to this rule include asthma medications such as inhalers and Epi-pens for allergic reactions. Please have all your medications in their original containers with you during registration as they will be checked into the Nurse’s Station at that time.  Exceptions are made at the discretion of the Camp Nurse and can be discussed either before camp by calling the camp office or during registration.

Allergies

Campers coming to camp with Epi-pens must carry them with them at all times.  Due to the distance from the camp to the nearest emergency facility, it is recommended that campers with Epi-pens bring two.  The Camp Nurse and the Camper’s dean should be notified of anyone coming to camp with Epi-pens.

NUT FREE ZONE
The INTERNATIONAL MUSIC CAMP is nut free. Many campers and staff have life-threatening nut allergies and our proximity to emergency facilities may not allow adequate treatment of a reaction. As a result no nuts, peanut butter, nut products, or products made in a facility that processes nuts are allowed anywhere on the camp. 

Special Diets

Campers who have food allergies that require meal adjustments such as a wheat or milk allergy should call or e-mail the IMC office when registering for camp.  Approximately 2 weeks before the camper’s session is to begin, the parent should call the IMC office to discuss the needs of the camper with the Food Service Coordinator.  Please be sure to mail or email the Health Form in advance so that the correct amount of food can be ordered.

IMC provides an extensive salad bar containing fresh fruits and vegetables.  A vegetarian option is provided for all meals but may not be classified as vegan.  Campers that have a special diet (vegan, gluten free, etc) may request a menu from the office prior to camp and bring their own food to supplement the IMC meals.  Food brought from home should be nut free and clearly labeled and brought in sealed storage containers and a designated spot in the fridge will be provided for storage.  It is the camper’s responsibility to bring to camp any food substitutions not routinely provided by IMC. A few exceptions apply, such as soy milk (if requested in advance).

After picking up the packet at registration at IMC, the parents/guardians and camper need to check in at the Dining Hall to meet the kitchen staff and finalize any special meal plans.

The key for IMC to be able to accommodate special diets is communication. 

Please contact the IMC office in advance (at least two weeks) of arrival either by phone or email in order to guarantee any dietary accommodations.

If you have questions regarding this information, please contact the camp office.
