Injury or illness while at camp
In the event of any injury or illness, each camper will be evaluated by the NATA certified trainer. He/She may recommend that your son sit out a session or revisit the trainer before the next session. Your son should follow the advice of the trainer as it is in his best interest to do so. If your son has not registered a complaint, the trainer cannot always know there is something wrong just by looking at a camper. In the event the trainer recommends your son see a physician, the trainer will try to contact you immediately. Please have your son prepared to drink a lot of fluids as heat related injuries are most common in summer.
In the event of injury or illness while at camp, your son will be taken to the UNC Hospital located within a mile of both the dorm and fields.
