Camp, Sports & Annual School Physicals

What are camp, back-to-school and sports physicals?

While specific requirements vary by school, camp or sports association, routine camp, school and sports physicals are an opportunity for healthcare providers to discuss important health issues with children and their guardians. Physicals can help ensure that the individual is healthy and physically prepared to join in activities. During the exam, the healthcare provider will review the individual's complete health history and ensure that he or she is up-to-date with current immunization recommendations for their age.
At Healthcare Clinic, we also include information about preventing and recognizing the signs of concussions in youth athletes.

Who needs camp, back-to-school and sports physicals?

Contact your school, camp or sports association for specific recommendations in your area. Many states require these examinations at least once a year or before participating in any physical activity, camp, or sport.

Before you come in, contact your Healthcare Clinic to make sure they are able to complete any forms/letters required by your school/camp/sports association. Be sure to bring any required forms with you.

Camp, sports and school physicals are available at Healthcare Clinic for patients ages 21 and under. Minors must be accompanied by an adult chaperone or guardian and have parental/guardian permission.

Most camp, back-to-school and sports physicals are not covered by insurance. Payment via cash, debit or credit card is due at the time of service.
