Nature Camp is partnering with CampDoc, which offers an electronic health record system for camps. Parents and caregivers can complete campers’ health information electronically.

The security and privacy of each camper’s health information is important to us. The CampDoc site is secure, encrypted, and password protected. You can find additional information about CampDoc privacy and security information at

We encourage parents and caregivers to watch this short video to help you get started on logging in to your account and completing your camper’s electronic health forms.

Required questions are marked with an * and outlined in red.  Upload any required documents to your CampDoc account.  If you’re on a phone/tablet, you can take a picture to upload the document.

Keep in mind that CampDoc automatically saves your information as you complete the health forms, therefore you can return to to make updates and/or continue filling out your campers’s health information. You can log in using the email address and password you previously created.

Each camper’s health information will save from year-to-year, so once you complete it in CampDoc this season, you won’t have to start from scratch next year.

Please note that CampDoc supports the current and previous major releases of Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Safari which provide improved security and performance for health information.

Here are a few additional important notes:

    • Nature Camp has provided CampDoc with the camper health history form only in English; if you are using Chrome, however, you may use the Google translate feature to translate text into a different language as follows.
      1. In the upper righthand corner, click the three vertical dots.
      2. Select Translate.
      3. In the popup window, click the three vertical dots and select Choose another language.
      4. Select Language to translate into and click Done.

        Please note that Nature Camp cannot guarantee the accuracy of any translation.

    •  The media release form for Nature Camp is now integrated into CampDoc and appears in the Authorization tab.
    • CampDoc provides the means either to download and print a blank form for a camper’s physician to fill out or to upload a digital copy of an existing physical form (say, for school or sports).
    • Please note that at the end of the Immunizations section, a question asks whether a camper is fully up to date on recommended vaccines against COVID-19. Above this question is a link to the vaccine page on the CDC website, which currently states the recommendation that everyone aged 5 years and older should receive at least one dose of an updated COVID-19 vaccine.
    • Finally, it is also possible to generate a pdf version of the camper health form (either blank or completed) by clicking PRINT in the lower righthand corner in the Health Profile section of CampDoc.

Here we’re taught not only to appreciate things as they naturally are, but also to see the opportunity in what we do, and let the world slow down at the same time. This, I believe, is our constant, and the most powerful one of all: the ability to approach the world with refreshed positivism.

At a place with such a variety of people, much of what you learn is through conversation and not necessarily what you set out to absorb. I come back each year for an experience impossible to comprehend if not here. I come back to learn how to pursue the commitment we have to better lives for ourselves, our planet, and generations to come. I come back to spend time with some of my favorite people in the world. I come back because I don’t know what my life would be like without Camp.

Going to Nature Camp is no longer just a want. It is a necessity, an essential part of my summer. It holds a very special place in my heart, and it always will. I always leave with a sense of balance and well-being, having totally soaked in all the wonders and virtues and lessons and friends and learning and nature.

Going to Nature Camp has taught me many things. When I first went to Nature Camp, I could not tell the difference between a death angel mushroom and an oyster mushroom. I also could not have told you the difference between quartzite and limestone. Since going to Nature Camp, I can tell you these things and many more. Nature Camp is truly a wonderful place. From my first day to my last, I have the most fun I will have all summer.

Nature Camp is a true chance for immersion learning. My family has been amazed how many times the academic learning at Nature Camp has been connected to my school and home life.

I feel that there could never be any words to explain my feelings for Nature Camp. It’s a different world there: no TV, radio, cell phone, or anything from the real world. Nature Camp has changed my life forever. I believe that when people cross that tiny bridge going into camp, they become their true selves. They take their masks off and have a break from everything in the world.

There is just something special about Nature Camp. Maybe it’s the smell of being outdoors, the freedom of being away from your parents, or that you are at a summer for two weeks. I do not think those are the reasons why Nature Camp is so special. I think it’s the people you meet, the science things you learn about, and the pride and confidence you walk away with at the end of the session.

I have attended Nature Camp for four years and have never had a more rewarding experience. Nature Camp has taught me what one person who cares can do to make a difference. The hikes to Table Rock, the salamander searches at Buttermilk Springs, the breathtaking view from Lookout Rock, and of course the Sunday hikes to undiscovered mountain peaks are experiences one cannot have anyone else, and experiences I will remember forever. I have made friendships at Nature Camp that promise to last a lifetime.

There is a coveted two weeks in the heart of the summer that is called Nature Camp. It is the best thing that I do all year and is what I most look forward to. I grow mentally there more in two weeks than I do in the rest of the year.

For the past three years I have attended Nature Camp and loved it. Most four-year-olds, when asked what they want to be when they grow up, say a fireman, a ballerina, or an astronaut. When people asked me what I wanted to be, I replied confidently, “A nature scientist. I want to save the land.” Ten years later my answer still hasn’t changed.
