Poison Ivy notice

Dallas Valley is located in a natural environment, where Poison Ivy occurs in our valley.  Poison Ivy is normally low to the ground with three leaves coming out of one stem, the outside two leaves have jagged thumbs. Please show this to your camper and remind them that they may come in contact with it. Don’t be scared, on average about 1 camper a week comes to the nurse with symptoms, that’s only 0.5% of our campers. Sticking to the main paths and out of the bushes will greatly reduce their chances of getting Poison Ivy. If your child is, unfortunately, one of the 0.5%, these are the steps that they need to take. 

  1. Immediately wash your skin with lukewarm, soapy water. Wash your hands and take a shower making sure you soap your whole body. 

  2. Put on fresh clean clothes and shoes, keep contaminated clothes separate from clean ones.

  3. See the nurse for inspection, they will be able to keep an eye on you and may give you a lotion or send you to a clinic for treatment. Make sure if anything in your symptoms changes to go see the nurse right away. 

  4. Don’t wear any clothing or footwear that you were wearing when you came in contact with the Poison Ivy until after it is washed. If you notice your symptoms in the morning we’ll need to wash your sleeping bag and pillowcase as well.  If necessary we can wash contaminated articles at camp.

  5. Do not scratch it!  Scratching increases the chances of spreading poison ivy to other parts of your body.  Not touching it is the best way to help get rid of it.  Remember to see the nurse if anything changes in your symptoms.
