Getting Ready: Healthcare

Published: March 16, 2020

Coronavirus Information from CLV

At Concordia Language Villages, the safety and health of our villagers and staff are our top priorities. We will continue our screening, training and prevention practices and supplement with appropriate measures as more information about COVID-19 becomes available. Ultimately, whether it’s the H1N1 pandemic that Concordia Language Villages successfully navigated more than a decade ago, or the current Coronavirus, keeping our staff and villagers safe and healthy is a commitment we meet with proven-protocols that have been widely used as a standard in the camping community. As always, we expect our villagers to arrive healthy and ready to participate fully in all Village activities. Learn more.


General Health Information

Our onsite health center is staffed with licensed health practitioners, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and MDs. Our healthcare staff ensures health and safety to all villagers by practicing regulations and guidelines from  the Minnesota Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Camp Association. Standards of practice are informed by the Minnesota’s Nurse Practice Act, Standards of Camp Nursing Practice and our insurance companies.

Starting in April, health forms through CampDoc will be available for villagers to complete, which will allow for pre-screening prior to arrival. Every villager and staff member undergoes a health screening upon arrival for any current, or recent, illnesses.



If your villager requires medication, it will be collected on Opening Day and kept in the Salolampi Health Center. The Health Center staff will distribute the medication daily at routine times. Learn more.


Healthcare in Minnesota

As our program takes advantage of the great outdoors, there are natural risks, such as ticks, sunburn, mosquitoes and poison ivy, with the location. You can help reduce these risks by helping your villager to be prepared. Learn more.
