The health of your child is of the utmost importance to us. Thus, it is the obligation of parents to inform Habo, in writing, with a full and accurate information regarding any medical situation of their child; temporary or chronic. We want every child to participate regardless of their medical situation, however, in order to ensure their health, our medic needs to know the child’s medical situation.
We know how food is an important factor in the success of a good camp, as well as the happiness and wellbeing of every child.
There will be a camera floating around the camp site taking pictures of the happenings of camp.
