We plan to have nurses on site to help monitor the children and watch for signs of illness. However, all medical care must be assumed by the families, and if your child is showing signs of illness they will not be allowed to participate in the OxyKids camp activities.  All parents must remain at the conference if they child is in the day camp. If there is not a designated family member/caretaker at the conference, you must take your child with you when you leave.
