If your child gets sick or has an accident during camp, he/she will receive medical attention from the school’s nurse or school doctor. If it is necessary for your child to receive medical attention off campus, the parent will be responsible for ALL medical expenses and/or prescribed medications. To obtain off-campus medical service for your child, we will need to have the following information on file:

                 A.   Signed and notarized medical consent form from parent(s) (see forms attached)

                 B.   Copy of insurance/ Medicaid card

                 C.  Important health information on special diets, asthma, allergies, hyperactivity, heart                                      condition,  epilepsy, blood type, etc.

IMPORTANT: Doctors and/or hospitals may refuse treatment of a camper without a notarized Medical Consent Form signed by parent(s) or guardian(s).

Be sure to complete and return all the requested forms attached. The fee of $150 must be paid in full along with the submission of all paperwork.


Disciplinary practices hold the best interest of the camper and school in mind. Campers will be expected to follow all school rules and regulations. They will be provided with an orientation session and a camper handbook. It is important to note that school policies on discipline may include one or more of the following, depending on the offense:

  1. Expulsion (fighting, possessing illegal substances and/or weapons, insubordination, breaking rules repeatedly)
  2. Work duty (dining hall, paper detail, etc.)
  3. Social probation (cannot attend social activities)
  4. Other methods will be used depending on the offense.  Summer campers are expected to abide by the school’s policy regarding drug and alcohol use; summer campers are therefore subject to testing if school officials have reasonable suspicion of drug and/or alcohol use. If the test proves positive, the summer camper may be suspended for the remainder of the Summer Enrichment Camp. The parents/guardians will receive no refund of fees.

Our transportation policy, for summer campers, is as follows:

             A.  We provide transportation to and from the airport as well as the bus and train stations from                          Jackson, Mississippi, ONLY between the hours of 6:00 a.m. until 10 p.m. If you wish for your                                  child(ren) to arrive or depart from another city or place, it will be your responsibility to make ALL                    the arrangements for getting them to and from The Piney Woods School.

            B.  For safety reasons and identification purposes, we must have a photograph of your child.

All instructors bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the program. Camp counselors are usually college students and alumni who are assigned to a small group of students and will be responsible for their overall chaperoning, care, and guidance. All counselors go through training prior to working with students. The nurse, doctor, camp coordinator, administrators, school counselors, and dormitory parents will also be available to help make summer camp a successful and happy experience.
