Bumps and scrapes are bound to occur at summer camp. In order to ensure that our campers receive proper medical care in the event of an unfortunate incident, Hartford's Camp Courant employs a full-time nurse who attends to the day-to-day medical needs of our campers. In the case of an emergency, campers will be transported to John Dempsey Hospital at the UCONN Medical Center. John Dempsey Hospital provides high quality care for children and adults, and is located less than five minutes from campus in Farmington.
Proper oral health plays a vital role in maintaining the overall health and wellness of children. Unfortunately, many of the children that attend Hartford’s Camp Courant do not have access to regular dental care. Hartford’s Camp Courant has partnered with Periodontist Dr. Michael Perl and his team to provide free dental screenings to all of our campers, which include a full exam of the mouth to identify tooth decay, bite and gum infections. Campers also receive a dental education less, toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste. If any oral abnormalities are found, a referral is made to one of four partnering clinics in the City of Hartford.
The first few years of a child's life are critical in the development of good vision. Unfortunately, many children have undetected vision problems that could cost vision loss if left untreated. Hartford's Camp Courant has partnered with the Lions Club to provide free vision screenings for its campers. The KidSight screening program is capable of detecting numerous vision problems, and also screens for color vision, depth perception and visual acuity.
