At the time of registration, parents/legal guardians are responsible for notifying IIL Camps of any allergies, health problems or other special medical conditions that require treatment (preventive or regular). If a medical problem arises after registration, parents/guardians are required to notify IIL Camps in writing (email or letter) prior to the start of the camp. Please note that this information must be communicated to IIL Camps independent of that already sent to IIL. Furthermore, IIL Camps does not provide suncream, so it is the responsibility of the parents/legal guardians to give one to their child(ren) when the weather requires it. IIL Camps cannot be held responsible in case of intolerance to a suncream lent by another child (unless the intolerance has been notified in advance).
Any dietary needs (intolerance, allergies, foods that cannot be eaten for religious reasons, etc.) must be notified to IIL Camps in the registration form. IIL Camps cannot be held responsible if parents/guardians have not reported these intolerances.
Parents/legal guardians booking camps that take place off-campus accept that their child(ren) are transported by IIL Camps external transport providers, if IIL buses are not available.
Mobile phones / tablets
As participants do not need their own phone or tablet during the camps, they are strongly discouraged from bringing them. IIL Camps reserves the right to confiscate phones/tablets if necessary. If participants need to contact a parent or other adult in an emergency, camp staff will provide access to a phone.
Permission of care
The parents/legal guardians authorise IIL Camps to provide their child with the necessary nursing care, and also to administer homeopathic treatment in case of headaches, knocks, bruises, bumps, digestive problems and other “minor” health problems. If the child’s condition requires it, the parents/legal guardians also authorise transport by ambulance to an appropriate care setting such as a hospital or community health facility. In addition, if the emergency contacts are unreachable, the parents/legal guardians authorise the doctor chosen by the authorities to provide their child with all the medical care required by his/her condition.
Finally, the parents undertake to inform the management of IIL Camps of any change in their child’s state of health, if different from that indicated at the time of registration.
All children attending the camps must be clean.
