Medical Help & Safety
Cohutta Springs is proud of it's safety record. We meet the requirements of the American Camp Association (ACA) for medical supervision. A nurse is available at the camp clinic 24 hours a day. Cohutta Springs Youth Camp is not staffed to provide a full service special medical needs program.
Important: The camper's health history form (which you will receive along with your confirmation) must be completed by the camper's parent/guardian, no more than 7 days prior to camp. This form will be emailed to you the week before your registered week of camp. Please Note: Cohutta Springs Youth Camp has limited accident insurance. The camp will provide the primary coverage to a certain level and family insurance will be secondary. Health insurance remains the family's responsibility, i.e. flu, earaches, and other personal health issues. The specific coverage and limitations is available from the Georgia-Cumberland Conference Risk Management Department.
Campers with special dietary needs due to allergies is a challenge, especially with the volume of campers being served each meal. We want all kids to be able to come to camp regardless of dietary needs. Click the links below to download and print guidelines on how we can partner to do this.
Staff Selection Process
Great camps start with the best staff. We never hire on a whim or perception, only with unquestioning recommendations of highly credible people who know them well. Staff employment requires a formal application, three recommendation forms, and interview with the Camp Director. A background check is run on each person hired.
