Health Resources

Our campus is managed by a skilled and knowledgeable staff with years of experience, degrees in higher education and a passion for the outdoors. All staff are trained to help maintain established health and safety standards. Individuals hold certificates in First Aid (many also have Wilderness First Aid training) and Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Appropriate Challenge Course Safety and Lifeguarding training certificates are held as activities require. All staff carry two-way radios so they can be in constant contact when on trail. Emergency response is a radio call and a fifteen minute paramedic drive away. An AED and an emergency epi-pen are located on each campus.

Our campus has a Health Technician and designated, trained, staff available to dispense medication. For more information, questions or concerns about health or medication while at Walden West, contact our Health Technician - ww_healthaide@sccoe.org or call 408.573.3063. Our fax number is 408.573.3066

Parents/guardians must note all medical concerns on the Health Information Form in the Registration Packet. And any appropriate additional forms. Walden West staff collect, dispense and log all medications, including vitamins, supplements, over-the-counter medicines.

All medications need:

  • A signed Medication Form by both parent/guardian AND healthcare provider.

  • To be in their original packaging.

  • Need to match the dosage on the Medication Form.

  • Placed in a ziplocked bag with the Medication Form.

  • Given to your classroom teacher prior to leaving for camp.
