When you arrive at Christikon, you will spend the first night at camp, with an orientation to life in the wilderness. You will learn how to set up and take care of your tent and be briefed on safety and low-impact camping practices (water treatment, group hiking, camping in bear country, latrine procedures, health care, etc.). Your group will leave the next morning after completing your pack-out.
Health Screening and Medications Management. You will go through a brief health screening, where one of our staff (under the direction of our Health Care Manager) will go over your Health Form and discuss any special needs you may have. You will need to turn in any medications you bring with you at this time. Following the accreditation standards of the American Camp Association, Christikon must have all medications (including over-the-counter medications you bring) under the control of the Camp Health Manager (or the appropriate counselor when persons are away from camp). Special arrangements are made during health screening with campers who must always carry certain medications with them (e.g. asthma inhalers)
