These tools are brought to you by ACA and the Association of Camp Nurses.
Use this Excel spreadsheet to track your camp’s injury and illness data and the accompanying code list to streamline your tracking process. Data can be entered as it occurs or at a time more convenient to your staff.
Before entering data, consider what triggers an injury or illness being entered on the spreadsheet. Some camps track all injuries and illnesses for which individuals sought care. Other camps might look only at impactful incidents (e.g., injuries or illness that took the person away from their normal camp routine for one or more hours).
Once data has been entered, it can be sorted in any number of ways to help you both understand your camp’s injury-illness experience and identify “hot spots,” things you might want to do something about.
