Woodward Copper staff.

can also use this list to stay organized while preparing for camp. Labeling your camper’s belongings with their
name helps us locate missing items, sometimes even before you know they are missing. If your camper didn’t
bring something home, please notify the camp office right away.

                                     CELL PHONE POLICY
Woodward Copper strives to create the best inclusive environment for summer campers of all ages and
disciplines. With a specific focus on creating the best overall experiences while attending Woodward Copper
Summer Camp, we have developed a cell phone policy for all summer campers:

        and video review as well as emergencies
    •   Cell phones and other devices are not to be used during meal times
    •   All Woodward Copper staff reserve the ability to remove from a camper a cell phone, computer, tablet
        or anything else that may hinder the camp experience of themselves or others.

•   If camp is canceled, at any time, for any reason, including COVID-19, you get a full refund (including the
    protection plan).

Woodward Way - The Woodward Way describes the values of our camp community so that everyone engages
in positive behaviors that support a safe, inclusive and fun environment. If a camper does not follow the
Woodward Way, they may need to visit with the camp director who will determine if the offense is grounds for
sending the camper home. If a camper is sent home, no refund will be issued.

Written cancellations must be emailed to registered location and acknowledged by Woodward Staff.

Payment Policy: For any unpaid balances 30 days prior to arrival, Woodward charges the remaining balance to

Woodward Copper only accepts credit cards.

Transfer: We understand schedule conflicts arise where your camper is unable to attend. With proper written
notice of 14 days or more, we will transfer your camp to another week or sport at no charge for the first
transfer. If more transfers occur, there may be an additional fee added to your account to be paid 30 days prior
to the first day of camp or upon request depending on date of request.

Camper Withdrawl from Camp: If you wish to remove your camper from Woodward for whatever reason for the
day or week, you must notify Woodward in writing via email at You can also
follow up with a phone call to the camp office at 970-968-3402. In the event we are not notified, we will reach
out to you inquiring if your camper is in good health and will be joining us that day.

                                 CONTACTING CAMPERS
Time at camp can be tough for both the camper and the parent. Staying in contact is important and we
encourage campers to call home during the afternoon via FaceTime through the Adventure Booth with their
counselor group. To help build confidence, independence, and social skills, we encourage parents to briefly
check-in while keeping conversations upbeat and positive by focusing on coaching sessions along with
recreational activities.

If your camper contacts you about homesickness, bullying, or any other issue, please encourage
him/her to talk to their counselor, the camp office, or any other camp staff. This provides campers with
confidence to address issues with others who can help remedy the situation right away. Also feel free
to notify the camp office so we can also follow up in a timely manner.

Other mailing & shipping tips
*Please note that when sending a package it is a good idea to send express 2-3 day shipping to ensure your
camper receives their package before they leave camp. If your package/mail isn’t sent early in the week, it is
not guaranteed that your camper will receive it when they are at camp & returning it can take weeks. If
packages do not arrive prior to your camper’s departure, you will be responsible for shipping fees to send it

*If you need to ship equipment for your camper’s camp, please send it via FedEx or UPS ONLY at least 10
days prior to the first day of camp. This will ensure that your camper will have his/her needed equipment on the
first day.

Visiting Camp
We enforce a strict “No Strangers” policy and we require all visitors to check-in with our camp office or the Barn
front desk, prior to visiting a camper. We encourage non-camp lodging campers and family members of
campers to stay at Copper Mountain. Please contact Copper Mountain Central Reservations at 800-458-8386
for more information.

A great time to visit camp and see what your camper has been doing for a short duration of time is between
6:00pm-8:00pm when the campers are at the Barn for evening activities. Visitors will need to check in at the
Barn front desk with valid ID. TBD

Stay-Over Campers
Do you have a camper(s) staying for multiple weeks in a row? They can stay at camp with an assigned
overnight counselor who will supervise them on Saturday night. Saturday and Sunday prior to the second
camp week tends to be more low key to allow campers to re-energize for their next week of camp. Some
Saturday & Sunday activities may or may not include: Barn time, Woodward Wrecktangle, movies, board
games, and EDGE backyard skate sessions.

Many people, young and old, experience feelings of homesickness when faced with a new set of living
conditions. Like many emotional expressions, homesickness is very contagious and must be recognized as
such. Our staff is trained to handle these problems. Should a camper call and express feelings of
homesickness, please encourage your camper to talk to his/her counselor, coach, camp office or other
Woodward staff member. This empowers them with confidence to address issues with others who are nearby
to help and is something that can help them deal with other social situations.

Sleep-away camp offers an excellent opportunity for campers to learn how well they can manage without their
parents as well and let other adults care for them. It has been our experience that it is more often the parents
that are having a difficult time adjusting to their camper’s absence or overreacting to a camper’s early anxiety
at being away from home.

   •   Check your own feelings about having your son or daughter gone for an extended period of time
   •   If you are not ready yourself, you may unwittingly make it difficult for your child to be away from you,
       consequently spurring feelings of guilt or feelings that he or she doesn’t have permission to enjoy him
       or herself outside your view.
   •   If your child contacts you upset, resist the urge to make promises about picking your child up or visiting.
       A visit from home interrupts their day, takes their attention from new friends and fun activities, and often
       spawns or exasperates homesickness.
            o Encourage your camper to talk to their counselor, coach, camp office, or any other Woodward
                staff member about what is going on.
            o Also feel free to notify the camp office so we can also follow up in a timely manner.

                                     ALTITUDE SICKNESS
Copper Mountain is at a base elevation of 9,712ft. Those campers who are coming to us from much lower
elevation may experience symptoms of altitude sickness such as dehydration, shortness of breath, light
headedness, and dizziness. Our medical staff, coaches, and counselors will be looking out for campers who
may be experiencing these symptoms, and will do everything they can to help alleviate them.
It is highly recommended to hydrate at least a day prior to coming to camp to help prevent altitude sickness.
While everybody is different, hydration is a very important factor and campers have plenty of opportunity to
hydrate throughout the day while at camp.

Woodward Copper operates under the Colorado State Child Care for Resident Camp License and requires the
following below. Please visit Online Forms and Required Information Explained for more information.

Participant Release

All campers MUST complete and sign (if under the age of 18 a parent or legal guardian 18 and older
must sign) the Copper Mountain Assumption of Risk, Release of Liability, and Indemnity
Agreement which acknowledges the “consent to treat.” Also by signing this release or liability waiver,
you are agreeing to pay any and all medical expenses in the event of an injury.
Unfortunately, your camper cannot participate in any activity without this signed document. This is located in
the medical form in your online portal.

Physical Examination & Immunization Requirements

We require that all campers get a physical examination performed within twenty four preceding months to
camp by a licensed physician or qualified, licensed nurse practitioner. The camp must be informed of any
physical problems which would limit the camper’s activity, any special care which the child will need, and
include a record of up-to-date immunizations which the child has had, including the date of the last tetanus
shot. The filled out physical form must be uploaded with all of the other paperwork as well as the up-to-date
immunization record on the State of Colorado form. Any camper with a recent musculoskeletal injury or recent
surgery requiring modified participation or extra monitoring throughout the week must present a participation
clearance note or modified activity form from their provider. These forms can be downloaded and uploaded
through your online portal.

We require that all parent/guardians provide a copy of their camper’s immunization record provided by their
licensed physician prior to their arrival to camp on the authorized State of Colorado form. This includes out-of-
state campers. This form can be downloaded and uploaded through your online portal. If a camper is not up-
to-date on his/her immunizations, you must complete an exemption form for the appropriate immunization the
camper is missing.

For more information about immunizations, please visit the Colorado Department of Public Health &
Environment page online here.

If your camper is exempt from obtaining a physical examination and/or immunizations due to religious or any
other beliefs or medical reasons, you must complete the exemption form which also can be downloaded and
uploaded through your online portal. The camp has the right to refuse the admission of a child who does not
have this completed form.


For more information about exemptions, please visit the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment
online here.

Employed Medical Personal

Woodward Copper has certified Ski Patrol on-snow to assess injuries in Pipeline Park, as well as Athletic
Trainers in the Barn to assess injuries in the training facility, at the EDGE, and in Copper Village. The majority
of injuries will be cared for in the Woodward Copper training room by the camp Athletic Trainers. In the event
of a serious injury, 911 will be called and the parent/legal guardian of campers under the age of 18 will be
notified immediately. The nearest Emergency Room is located in Frisco, Colorado, which is about 15 minutes
away from camp.

Registered Nurses (RNs) are also employed and stay on site, available 24/7 to administer prescriptions, care
for campers who are ill or homesick and provide general first aid.

Pre-existing Injuries & Medication
Campers with pre-existing injuries or prescription medication should include this information and any special
instructions in the medical form in your online portal.

If your child has been prescribed medication(s) that they take between 9:00am-4:00pm, you must provide a
signed physician’s note listing each medication prescribed to your camper with dosage, frequency, and reason
for medication. All prescription medications must be kept in the original bottle or container with the original
pharmacy label that lists: the child’s name, prescribing practitioner’s name, pharmacy name & telephone #,
date the prescription was filled, expiration date of the medication, name of the medication, dosage, how often
to give the medication, and the length of time the medication is to be given.

Medication is dropped off to camp medical staff at check-in and is stored in a locked storage container in the
Medical Center at the EDGE and is distributed by a trained Woodward staff.

If your child requires carrying any medication during the day, you must provide a signed physician’s note
providing authorization for self-carry.

Parents/legal guardians are responsible for picking up the medication. If not picked up, the medication will be
properly disposed.

Check-In Health Screen & Temperature Check
Also at check-in, all campers and vehicle occupants will be asked to complete a health screening form &
temperature check. The health screening form is to help the medical team identify any illnesses that your
camper may have in order to provide the best medical care. This is in addition to identifying any illnesses that
can spread to others at camp including but not limited to CO-VID19. When we feel a child has a contagious
illness or condition, in order to maintain the good health of other campers, we will notify the parent, ask they
remove the camper and they will receive a full refund.

Questions on the health screening form include but are not limited to:
   • Has your camper had any of these symptoms or were exposed to these in the past 7 days including
       cough, runny nose, skin rash, sore throat, fever, and eye drainage.
   • Has your camper been treated or exposed to nits, lice, measles, or mumps in the past 14 days?
   • Has your camper travelled outside of the US in the past 14 days?
   • Has your camper been exposed to any known carriers of the coronavirus in the past 14 days?
   • Have you seen a doctor in the last 7 days?
   • Did you bring medication, including OTC, to camp?
Also part of the health screening, all campers will be checked for nits (lice eggs) and lice. If lice eggs or
lice are found during the health screen, we will ask that the camper be removed from camp to get treated. This
is to maintain the good health of other campers. With a physician’s note, the camper can return once treatment
is successful.

If there are any activities that your camper is unable to participate in due to medical reasons or you do not wish
your camper to participate in, please be sure to note these activities in the Health Form in your online portal.

For any questions or clarification regarding medical including any special medical needs, please contact the
camp office at 970-968-2318 x60824.

                                       SPENDING MONEY
  **EFFECTIVE 2021: Woodward will no longer provide Camper Store Cards or allow camper cash banks**

Make sure to think about spending money prior to camp. Campers typically spend $50-$500 per week on
snacks and souvenirs like Woodward t-shirts, hoodies & hats, sunglasses, skateboards, snacks, drinks and
lots more. In our experience, a camper will spend what’s given to them so send your camper with what you
don’t mind them spending.

We recommend sending your camper with one or both of the following:

Pre-Paid Reloadable Credit Cards are the best way to give your camper spending money while at camp. It
also teaches them responsibility with credit and debit cards.

   • The amount is a limit you set
   • You can track what your camper spends money on
   • You can reload it online
   • It can be used at many Copper Mountain owned outlets in addition to others
   • You can use the remaining funds post camp

Note: not all pre-paid cards have the above benefits. Select a card that works the best for you & your camper.

Card Suggestions:
   • Bluebird by American Express
   • FamZoo Prepaid Card
   • EasyPay Prepaid Card by Wells Fargo
   • NetSpend by Visa

Cash in the form of small bills and quarters, mostly used for EDGE vending machine snacks which are very
popular at night. Change may not always available if you send your camper with large bills. Cash can also be
used if campers have the opportunity to go to Starbucks, Camp Hale, City Pop (candy store), and other Copper
establishments with their group. ATMs are on site for cash withdrawal using debit cards if needed.

Meals and Snacks
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included with all camp options and have no additional fees.
Breakfast is served 7:30am – 8:30am
Lunch is served 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Dinner is served 5:00pm – 6:00pm

If your camper is hungry outside of these meal-times, they can purchase snacks at the Barn or Surf Shack. It is
also highly recommended to send your camper with snacks to keep in his/her room.

Please note: Red Bull is only sold to anyone over the age of 13.

Tips for your camper’s coaches and counselors are optional. Please note that the coaches & counselors are
two different Woodward Staff who will be with your camper at different times throughout the day. If you wish to
give your camper’s coach or counselor a tip, please do so directly with them in person or via Venmo.

The Woodward Way
The Woodward Way describes the values of our camp community so that everyone engages in positive
behaviors that support a safe, inclusive and fun environment. Woodward expects all campers to:
