Medical Forms & Care Plans

Camp Thundermoon will use CampDoc, an electronic, web-based health record system to maximize the health and safety of our campers during the summer, and after school participants throughout the year.

  • Your medical information must be submitted through CampDoc.
  • Once registered in Daxko, you will receive an invite via email from CampDoc to provide your medical information. 
  • Medical information must be entered and completed by the week before your camper attends camp.
  • Please refer to the CampDoc “how to” information link for step by step instructions. 
  • CampDoc Parent Letter
  • CampDoc User Information 
  • CampDoc Health Profile
  • CampDoc Upload Documents
  • Email with questions.
  • Every camper needs a medical form signed by your provider in order to attend camp. You will need to print the form and have your medical provider complete them. Then upload the document to CampDoc. 
  • State law prohibits a child from attending camp without the medical forms completed by a physician within 36 months prior to attending camp. 

Other Important Registration Information
