Health & Safety


For the health and safety of all campers and staff, we require medical clearances, signed by a physician or health care practitioner, including updated childhood immunization records.  Due date: On or before May 1, 2024. Immunizations include: Mumps, Measles, Rubella, Polio, Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids, Pertussis, Haemophilus Influenza Type B, Hepatitis B, and Varicella (chickenpox).

Please note: In order for your child(ren) to be grouped and participate in camp, all required health forms must be received on or before May 1, 2024. For families registering after May 1, please upload your child’s medical clearance forms as soon as possible. Your child cannot be placed on a roster until medical clearance forms have been received.

Tip: Please use your child’s current School’s Medical Clearance and upload onto your online account, as soon as possible.



Campers with Food Allergies: Campers with documented food allergies will be unable to participate in our optional lunch program since our food service provider cannot guarantee meals or snacks that are peanut-free, tree-nut free, free from other common food allergens (dairy, soy, wheat, sesame, shellfish, etc.) or free from any cross-contamination. Campers with documented food allergies will be removed from our lunch rosters and will be expected to bring lunch daily.

Snack Option: Campers with documented food allergies must bring their own snacks to camp. For your camper’s safety, snacks can be managed by our camp nurse. 



Campers and ESF team members are not permitted to bring cell phones or electronic/web-linked devices to camp as they are a distraction. To promote a healthy camp environment we ask the following:

  • Please leave cell phones and electronic devices at home.
  • If you have an urgent message for your child, we ask that you call the camp office at 215.247.7010. We will relay any information to your child immediately.
  • ESF is not responsible for what happens to any devices if brought to camp.

Our goal is to create a safe environment, conducive to discovery, and free of all distractions that may hinder the learning process and joy of camp. Thank you for your continued support, cooperation, and commitment to keeping our camp environment healthy and safe.
