"YFC Camp was the best week of my life!" -Manatee High senior

At YFC Camp, it is our desire to create an environment that invites God to transform the lives of young people through shared experiences, outdoor challenges, and times of solitude that draw students to the heart of God within the context of authentic relationships and memorable learning experiences.

Dear Parents of NorthBay HS YFC Campers,
New this year, YFC Camp is partnering with CampDoc.com to offer online electronic health record system for camps. The
system consolidates and integrates camper health information and consent forms into a centralized and secure location.
The security, confidentiality and privacy of your child’s personal health information will always be protected. Only YFC Camp
staff and your local YFC trip leader will have access to camper health information. This is no different than who has had access
to the information than in the past – if anything, it is fewer people. The CampDoc.com site is secure, encrypted and password
protected.


How to Register and Fill out the Electronic Medical Record:
1. Go to app.campdoc.com/register/nbac
2. Enter your email and begin filling out the form
3. Register for your “session” by selecting the group your child will be attending camp with keeping in mind that camper
groups are listed separately from Project Serve groups in there for each chapter/ministry group.
4. The next step will offer you a “Protection Plan.” This is a supplemental insurance service provided by CampDoc
company and is not an offering of Youth For Christ USA. This is completely your choice as a parent to purchase but
please note it is not a requirement of YFC Camp in order to attend camp with us.
5. Continue to work through the steps completing your child’s “Health Profile.” All the red buttons along the right side of
your screen will be green when the Health Profile is completed.


A Few Things to Note:
• The forms have E-Signature. These are accepted and meet requirements for legal signatures.
• The system saves everything automatically as you work through it. Don’t let the fact that there is no “Save” button
throw you off  Therefore, you can work on it, take a break, go get information and come back to it another time by
logging back in.
• You will receive periodic notifications from the system if you have not completed required health information.
• Your child’s Trip Leader has access to the system and has training resources if you run into problems, please connect
with that person for assistance.


We are excited to continually evolve, building safer, more productive and more efficient systems to create the best experience
for you and your child! We cannot wait to see you this summer!


Sarah Nelson
YFC Camping Specialist & Registrar
