CAMP GLOW DETAILS

MEDICAL CLEARANCE

Camp GLOW is a strenuous practical camp, which involves many physical exercises. For this reason the Marine Institute requires participants to obtain medical clearance before the camp. Medicals can only be conducted by one of the approved physicians listed on the Marine Institute list of approved physicians. Please have one of these physicians complete the health form.

Marine Institute designated physicians list. See List.

CLOTHING REQUIREMENTS

Camp GLOW involves practical exercises. Although protective clothing for firefighting exercises is provided by the OSSC, camp participants should wear clothing that is appropriate for practical work and weather appropriate. Women are also required to bring athletic shoes for running and aerobic activity, and a water bottle.

CAMP LOCATIONS

The camp(s) will take place in two locations: the OSSC, Foxtrap, and at the SERT Centre, Stephenville. Both of these facilities are part of the Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland. These are non-residential camps and participants will be responsible for their own accommodations.

For participants enrolled at the Foxtrap site, a daily bus service will be provided, free of charge. Eligible participants will be picked up at the Marine Institute main campus, Ridge Road, 8:30 a.m. daily, and taken to the Foxtrap site. The bus will depart Foxtrap 5:00 p.m. daily, to return to the Marine Institute. Participants will have to secure their own transportation to the Marine Institute, Ridge Road campus daily.
