At AstroCamp Virginia, the health and safety of our campers is our top priority
At AstroCamp, the safety and well-being of our participants is paramount. We can handle most of your student’s medical needs with advanced notice. All medications must be noted on the student health form and administered under the supervision of the student’s teacher or group chaperone. We have a basic first-aid room on site. All of our program staff are first-aid, CPR, and water safety trained.
- In all of our classes and activities, we provide exceptional teaching and supervision by instructors who have been trained in that specific program area. Students and staff are required to follow safety guidelines for each activity and relevant safety equipment such as helmets, life preservers, harnesses, etc. are always used. Two-way radios are positioned at each program area and throughout camp for communication with the office and camp directors.
- In case of illnesses, medical emergencies or situations requiring additional assistance, we follow all appropriate EMS procedures. There is a pharmacy and clinic in the nearby town. And in the case of serious medical emergencies, local EMS Paramedics are always on-call and will arrange for transport to a hospital if the situation warrants.
