On April 4, 2018, the Colorado Department of Health and Human Services issued an update to the statute 12-CCR 2509-8 7.711 "Rules Regulating Children's Resident Camps." A number of these updated rules and policies must take affect prior to the start of camp at Glacier View Ranch in June.
The updates have streamlined outdate language and aim to increase the safety of summer camp programs for young people across the state. While Glacier View Ranch is already in compliance with a number of the updated rules, several updates to the facility, training policies, and office administration will ensure that our summer camp program adheres to the law and remains a certified Children's Resident Camp. A few of the more major changes include the installation of new panic-hardware on the longhouse doors, updated signage indicating hazards around camp, and more intensive fingerprinting and background checks that are being required of a larger portion of the summer staff.
Most of the updated rules impact Glacier View Ranch facilities and processes, serving to improve the overall experience for the campers that will attend this summer. For the most part, the updates do not change how parents and campers will interact with the camp program. However, one major rule update CHANGES REGISTRATION DEADLINES! This is very important to note. REGISTRATION for each camp session WILL CLOSE 10 DAYS PRIOR to EACH CAMP SESSION'S START DATE. Walk-ups and late registrations will not be allowed.
Per 12-CCR 2509-8 7.711.31 B: "At least ten (10) calendar days prior to admission, each camper must furnish a health history which indicates communicable diseases and chronic illnesses or injuries the individual has had, any known drug reactions and allergies, medications being taken, and any necessary health procedures or special diets."
This means that we cannot allow a camper to attend GVR Summer Camp who has not provided the health history at least 10-days prior to the day of on-site registration and admission. The Health History form is required as a part of our online reservation process. It is very important that registrants complete the entire form at the time that they register online.
Again, summer camp registration for each session will close 10-days prior to that session's start date. Please plan accordingly and register for summer camp early!
