Concussion Information Concussion (from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/signs_symptoms.html) What are the Signs and Symptoms of Concussion? Most people with a concussion recover quickly and fully. But for some people, symptoms can last for days, weeks, or longer. In general, recovery may be slower among older adults, young children, and teens. Those who have had a concussion in the past are also at risk of having another one and may find that it takes longer to recover if they have another concussion. Symptoms of concussion: -Difficulty thinking clearly -Headache -Fuzzy or blurry vision -Irritability -Sleeping more than usual -Feeling slowed down -Nausea or vomiting (early on -Dizziness -Sadness -Sleep less than usual -Difficulty concentrating -Sensitivity to noise or light -Balance problems -More emotional -Trouble falling asleep -Difficulty remembering new information -Feeling tired, having no energy -Nervousness or anxiety Some of these symptoms may appear right away, while others may not be noticed for days or months after the injury, or until the person starts resuming their everyday life and more demands are placed upon them. Sometimes, people do not recognize or admit that they are having problems. Others may not understand why they are having problems and what their problems really are, which can make them nervous and upset. The signs and symptoms of a concussion can be difficult to sort out. Early on, problems may be missed by the person with the concussion, family members, or doctors. People may look fine even though they are acting or feeling differently. When to Seek Immediate Medical Attention: Danger Signs in Children Take your child to the emergency department right away if they received a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body, and: -Headache that gets worse and does not go away. -Weakness, numbness or decreased coordination. -Repeated vomiting or nausea. -Slurred speech -Will not stop crying and cannot be consoled. -Will not eat. The people checking on you should take you to an emergency department right away if you: -Look very drowsy or cannot be awakened. -Have one pupil (the black part in the middle of the eye) larger than the other. -Have convulsions or seizures. -Cannot recognize people or places. -Are getting more and more confused, restless, or agitated. -Have unusual behavior. -Lose consciousness (a brief loss of consciousness should be taken seriously and the person should be carefully monitored).

Phone and Electronics:
Campers are not allowed to use electronics during camp hours.
Our technology policy is designed to allow campers to experience camp away from the distractions of everyday life and have time a part to develop relationships with other campers, and their counselors.
If lightning is within five miles, with or without hearing thunder, the game(s) or practice(s) should be suspended and shelter sought. (A rough guideline is to measure the time between the lightning flash and hearing the corresponding thunder. If it is 30 seconds or less, seek shelter.) We do not have an indoor facility to continue camp, in the case of severe weather parents will be contacted. Camps will be adjusted as the heat index rises, we continue camp during high temps unless heat index reaches 100°F. There is no refunds due to weather.
