H1N1 Swine Flu pre-screening form

Per the Centers for Disease Control, H1N1 (Swine) Flu has reached the pandemic level.

[A current image of the CDC map here.]

As a precaution, Camp Rock Enon is screening everyone who comes into camp for Swine Flu.

Each unit can help speed in the check-in process at Camp Rock Enon by filling in the top portion of this page: Camp/Activity Participant ILI Pre‐Screening Form

The form has 6 questions to be answered by the screener (please do not check off the boxes).

From the form:
If fever and (2) TWO or more boxes are checked “yes” above, give the patient a regular mask to wear and instruct them to keep it on until told it is ok to take it off.

The medical officer or appropriate staff member will determine if any participant needs to be quarantined and parents of youth members called to pick them up from the camp/activity.

The medical officer or appropriate staff member may also determine that an adult is unable to participate based on the above criteria.

Camp Rock Enon is taking this seriously to help keep all campers safe. Anyone visiting CRE must complete the form prior to entering the camp.

GOREgeous in Gore!

Weather plays a huge role in a summer camp experience.

Tomorrow begins the first official day of summer camp at Camp Rock Enon. Hundreds of Cub Scouts, scads of dads, many moms, and legions of leaders will arrive and invade the tranquility.

Right now, the weather looks great for the week. Just the usual chance of afternoon thunderboomers to mess up the lakefront plans.

We have been to CRE for summer camp when there wasn't a drop of rain to be found, searing heat, 50 degree mornings (on the day of the Polar Bear Swim), and constant rain (12 inches in 3 days).

Still, it is perfect. The weather just adds spice to the memories.

See you at camp.
