Cell Phone Policy

Whether or not your student takes a cell phone is your decision. Cell phones are almost always a major distraction. Students do tend to bene t more from camp if they disconnect from friends at home and focus on growing closer to God. Cell phones are allowed at Camp Tejas with restrictions and at your own personal risk. Cell phone use will be permitted only before 9 a.m. and between the hours of 1-5:30 p.m. Use during any other time is prohibited. If used at any other time, phones will be collected and returned at the end of the camp session. Please note that phones do run a high risk of being lost or damaged at camp. Also, reception at camp is not dependable. PVC will NOT be responsible for theft, loss or damage of phones.

Lost Items Policy

If students do not return home with all their belongings, we will have a lost and found box at the kiosk the rst weekend they return home from camp. Items will be kept for one week following camp, then will be washed and donated. It is suggested that you label all items with your child’s name.

Health Information

We have a registered nurse on site 24 hours a day in a well-equipped facility. We hope that your campers will never need to experience our nurse’s station, but if they need us, we are here to help them! We will promptly contact you if there is an issue that a ects your child’s camp experience.

Health Forms

If there are changes to your child’s health condition or medications after registration has been completed, please contact our o ce at 956.585.3203 or email us at [email protected] to update the information.

Medications

Campers are not permitted to keep any medications in their cabins or on their person. A designated nurse will be available to dispense any medications as needed. All medication (prescription and non-opened over-the-counter medications) must be brought to the nurse’s desk at check-in the morning of departure. We require all over-the-counter medications to be in their unopened packaging and prescription medications to be in their prescription bottles with the original prescription labels on the outside, and inside, only the amount required for camp. A nurse will administer all medications. If campers must carry an inhaler or other emergency items with them, we must have a doctor’s written note allowing for this exception. When camp is over, please make sure to pick up all remaining medications from the nurse including inhalers and epi pens. Unclaimed medications will be held by student ministries sta for one week and then discarded. Please make sure to let us know about all allergies including stings, foods, medicines, etc. on the Camp Tejas Guest Medical & Release Form. We can provide special dietary needs for those campers who are under medical supervision or have food allergies. Please Do: 1. Update health forms if necessary. 2. Bring all medications to the nurse’s desk at check-in the morning of departure. Please Don’t: 1. Bring opened, over-the-counter, non-prescription medications. 2. Bring your child to check-in if he/she been running fever within the previous 24 hours. *Please let us know if your child is ill, and we can discuss arrangements for a late arrival to camp.
