Benefits of a Camp Physical
A camp physical is critical to ensure campers and counselors are ready to enjoy the full camp experience: hikes, swimming, learning new skills, making new friends and more! There are a number of reasons to have a physical check-up before participating in these activities, and why they are generally required by the camp and the state.
- Know general health and potential health hazards. A camp physical ensures your child can participate in all camp activities. Your RediClinic clinician will review his or her medical and immunization history, examine vision, and assess your child’s mobility and general health to determine if there are problems that could interfere with participation in camp.
- Evaluate preexisting conditions. During the physical, your clinician can evaluate preexisting conditions, such as asthma, and make recommendations for medications or improved treatments.
- Receive training tips. Some sports camps may require a more comprehensive pre-participation sports physical examination. Getting a sports physical gives you peace of mind that your child is physically fit enough to participate in the sport they want to play. In addition to the physical exam, our clinician can provide training tips to reduce the likelihood of injury during camp.
It’s best not to get a camp physical done at the last minute, so you have time to update immunizations and follow any advice our clinicians may have.
