HEALTH & SAFETY

What happens in case of inclement weather?

The majority of a camper’s day is spent outside, which means that we are always watching the weather forecast. Our incredible counselors have “rainy day” plans already prepared for the occasional thunderstorm. If there is dangerous weather conditions like thunderstorms or tornado watches, we take campers indoors until it is clear to go back outside.

To see what the weather is like at camp, search using our zipcode for the most accurate results: 76570.

What do you do for campers with special eating considerations?

We honor and provide for almost every dietary restriction. Special diet requests/notes are a part of our secure online registration process. If you need to let us know about any special diets or notes for your campers, just give us a call at 936-295-7641 or email us at wildernessridge@forestglen.org

How will my camper receive medication?

ALL medications need to be checked-in with the Camp Nurse at registration on opening day. Be sure to have instructions ready including dosage and times given. All medications must be in original packaging.
