Campers must be able to take care of themselves. Children who have been advised by a medical professional to avoid additional stress on the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems may not attend.

All children are to undergo a medical checkup upon arrival at the camp. Children with lice infestation will receive treatment. Please indicate in the medical form if your child has already been treated for pediculosis, mycosis or scabies. Such children are exempt from further treatment.

Children with health contraindications or lacking properly filled-out medical records WILL BE SENT BACK with a chaperone at the expense of the organization or person who sent the child to the camp. The healthcare facility that filled out the child’s medical record form will be notified of the reasons the child was not admitted to the camp.

Should a child fall ill, the camp will provide meals and medical treatment until a full recovery is made, even it takes longer than the child’s planned stay at the camp. Or the child can be sent home with the consent of the parents or chaperone, in which case the child will be supplied with sufficient medicine for the trip home.

The date and conditions of the child’s return home after recovering will be coordinated with the organization that sent the child to Artek and the parents. There are no partial refunds in case of early departure from Artek.

  • all health certificates;
  • a copy of the child’s medical insurance policy;
