In the case of disciplinary problems, no refund will be granted for any camper dismissed from Lions Camp Kirby by the Camp Director. In such cases parents or guardians will be responsible for immediate transportation home.
Inspection of Belongings:
For the safety and protection of all campers, it is policy that on arrival at camp, the camp staff will inspect each camper’s suitcases, trunk or duffel bags and other belongings when needed. We feel that this practice is necessary to protect every camper from misusing drugs, fireworks, knives and other hazardous items. This also applies to all non-prescribed medications. All medications will be secured and handled by the Camp Health Provider. Any infraction will be dealt with according to the LAW and the camper will be sent home.
Camp Kirby will not accept collect calls. All calls to home must be made collect unless otherwise directed by the Camp Director. Interpreters will be on duty to interpret camper’s calls home and a TTY will also be available for camper’s use. WE DO NOT ENCOURAGE CALLS FROM HOME TO CHECK ON THE CAMPER’S PROGRESS. ONLY EMERGENCY CALLS, PLEASE. Camp phone number is (610) 982-5731. We will ask campers to write home.
Camp Fee and Refunds:
The camp fee includes room, meals, full use of the recreational facilities, Camp Kirby T-Shirt and camp activities. Camp fee is not refundable except in cases of emergency such as medical reasons with written evidence from physician, death in the family or extraordinary circumstances approved by the Camp Director. Full refunds will not include the non-refundable registration fee of $25.00.
Each camper will be covered by liability insurance under Lions Camp Kirby. Camper Health & Accident Insurance is covered by the camp.
First aid and minor medical care will be provided at camp by the staff or Resident Health Officer. In cases requiring more serious medical attention, emergency cases will be taken to the Doylestown Hospital Emergency Room for treatment. Camp policy requires that all campers have on record a health history and examination form signed by the parents or guardian and a physical examination signed by a doctor. It is also the camp policy that all camper medication brought to camp are secured by the Resident Health Officer in a locked cabinet. All prescribed drugs must be in the container in which they were issued (with medical orders and physician’s name intact).

• Open-toed shoes or sandals are permitted only inside the cabin or pool area.
