About Health Insurance, Emergencies or Injuries

A primary goal at Aspen Day Camp is to keep your children safe. We teach kids how to make responsible common sense decisions, to know their own limits, and to communicate if they are getting tired or are in need of anything. Our staff is well trained to prevent and mitigate injuries, but camp activities include certain risks and dangers, and injuries may occur. If a child requires medical attention he/she will be taken to the following hospitals:


Aspen Valley Hospital, 970-925-1120 avhaspen.org

or

Valley View Hospital, 970-945-6535 vvh.org


We will contact parents or legal guardians in the event of a medical emergency. When filling out the registration form please complete all of the necessary information—your child’s well-being depends it.

Additional Information on Immunizations:


Aspen Day Camp encourages children to become fully protected with vaccines that are now available to prevent infectious diseases that are dangerous for children and adults living in the United States. The current immunization recommendations are posted on official websites of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for infants, children, and adults.


The development of vaccines has been one of the great accomplishments of the modern era. These dangerous diseases and the the safety of our children depends upon their obtaining immunizations and keeping them current. The recommended adult vaccines not only protect the person receiving the vaccine, but also help prevent the spread of disease to children.
