NEW: Beam Camp Health Forms - We're debuting new, streamlined health forms this year. Here's a guide:
Page 1 - Health care authorization - PARENT completes
Page 2 - Part 1: Camper Health History (PARENT completes),
Part 2: Health Care Provider Assessment (DOCTOR or Health Care Provider completes and attaches latest physical exam and immunization records)
Page 3 - Non-Prescription Medication Register (PARENT completes)
Page 4 - Prescription Medication Register (DOCTOR or Health Care Provider completes)
We also require a photocopy of both sides of your child's health insurance card. Health forms can be emailed to email@example.com OR mailed to Beam Center, 60 Sackett St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
Brooklyn Buses: Buses for both sessions will leave from Court Street between 1st Place and 2nd Place in Brooklyn, on the west side of the street. Please arrive no later than 7:00am on the first day of your camper’s session. If you are running late to the bus, please call Brian’s cell: (917) 620-0491.
Drop-off at Camp If you have arranged to transport your camper to Beam, please plan to arrive at camp between 1pm and 2pm on the first day of your camper’s session. Camp will not be open before 1, please plan accordingly.
We invite families to join us at camp on the final day of your camper’s session between 10AM and noon for a celebration of the Beam Project.
Final Weekend Accommodations For a country weekend, we like the Lakeshore Farm Inn, Meadow Brook Farm and Under The Elm. For small town check out the Holiday Inn Express and Anchorage Inn in Rochester. For metropolitan options, all chain hotels in Concord and Dover are good. For swanky, try The Centennial in Concord or Exeter Inn in Exeter.
Any medications (including inhalers and vitamins) should be placed in zip-loc bags clearly labeled with the camper’s name and dosage instructions for collection at the bus. Please be sure that all medications will not expire prior to the end of camp.
Notification in case of Camper Health Issue
You will be notified if your camper has over a 99-degree temperature or injures him/herself enough to warrant being taken for outside medical consultation. You will be notified in the case of any condition that warrants outside medical consultation whether at camp or at the Frisbie emergency room or Barrington Urgent Care.
Please be sure your camper is lice and nit free prior to camp. We have hired the Lice Treatment Center to conduct head checks on all incoming campers. If your child comes to camp with lice you may a) retrieve them and treat them yourself, or b) have them professionally treated at camp and be billed $350 (no Beam mark-up, of course) for treatment.
Please send lots of physical mail and e-mail to your camper. Email messages are printed out and distributed daily. Please do not attach large files to your emails. Campers may receive packages but, please, do not include food products of any kind and limit gifts to reading matter and modest mementos/trinkets rather than pricey games and toys.
