Please check the completed medical forms for any medical conditions that may present a problem on your trip. Notify our Program Coordinator (during our telephone contact) two weeks prior to your groups arrival of any food allergies or medical conditions that may be of concern. Please be sure that all asthmatics bring their prescribed inhalers with them to camp.
We will collect the medical forms upon arrival. The forms will be available to you in our first aid room. We are required to keep the CIMI medical forms on file. Please make copies if you are using the same forms for your transportation purposes.
We require at least one male and one female chaperone to provide safe and adequate supervision in the dorms.
Chaperones should be chosen very carefully to help you with the supervision and participation duties. Students are directly motivated by the chaperones. Be sure that you chaperones know what is expected of them in regards to participation, supervision and communal living. You will want to assign chaperones to monitor free-time activities. We may ask you to limit your chaperones to a ratio of one chaperone to every 15 students (this would only happen to avoid housing problems).
Our Assistant Program Director will phone about two to three weeks prior to arrival for final student and chaperone count. We will discuss your daily schedule, the number of research groups, cabin assignments and other pertinent details for your trip.
Drugs or alcohol are not allowed in camp. Students are not allowed to smoke. Chaperones that smoke may only do so in designated areas. We suggest not bringing any radios or valuables.
It is not recommended to send mail to a child if they will only be here for three days. Make sure the
return address is on the letter if it arrives late. Please no care packages!
However, if a parent would like to send a letter to their child, please address the letter as follows:
Child’s Name School name C/o CIMI PO Box 796 Avalon, CA 90704
