The safety and security of our students has been our number one priority for over three decades. Our well-trained staff is CPR and First Aid certified and are on-duty 24 hours a day both on and off campus. Additionally, the University of Virginia provides electronically controlled entrances to all dorms.
Routine doctor’s appointments while at camp are arranged through a local urgent care facility. For 24-hour emergency care students are taken to the University of Virginia Medical Center.
Our staff will handle all arrangements for medical care including appointments, transportation, accompanying students and follow-up care. Parents are responsible for all medical bills incurred by students while at camp.
Our Executive Director, Patti Kearns, is a registered nurse and works at Martha Jefferson Hospital.
4 Star and the University of Virginia both require a Medical Release for all participants.
A Medical Release, which needs to be signed by parents/guardians, will be emailed to you upon receipt of your deposit/application in your Camp Packet.
The completed and signed form must be returned to our main office at least one week prior to check-in, otherwise your child will not be able to participate in the program. Injured or ill students will be given prompt medical attention; however, health and accident expenses are not covered in the tuition cost and are the responsibility of the student’s parents.
If a student is not covered by insurance, a major credit card must be on file or cash on hand at camp.
Medical Insurance for International Students
We recommend that all international students to our camps purchase traveler’s insurance to cover any illness or injury while at camp. A couple of links outside our website to help you with researching this insurance:www.ivisitorinsurance.com and www.sevencorners.com
Summer Camp Rules
4 Star has important rules which help all our students enjoy and receive maximum benefits from the camp. There is zero tolerance for use of tobacco, drugs, alcohol or gambling. Students may not behave disrespectfully to staff members or to other students. Students may not behave disruptively and/or in a manner that limits another student’s enjoyment or learning. Curfews are listed in “a typical day”. Written permission from the parent or guardian is required for a guest to take a student off grounds. The guest must have picture identification and adhere to our normal curfews. A breach of any of these rules may result in expulsion of a student without refund.
