ePACT is a secure emergency network that we use to collect medical and emergency contact information electronically for Nature Preschool and Camp Backcountry. Not only does ePACT replace paper forms, but it also ensures we have a way to communicate with you in the event of an illness, injury, or larger scale emergency.

Why are we using ePACT?
To save you time - With ePACT, yu only need to complete your child’s information once, and then verify that it is still correct for additional programs that use ePACT, or for subsequent years in our program. 

Improved privacy and security – Eliminating paper forms ensure that your key information is safe and secure, while authorized staff members can still access this information any time they need it, even when offline. ePACT uses the same encryption as online banking, and limits access to only the staff members we assign for enhanced privacy. 

Better support – ePACT makes it easy for you to share comprehensive health and emergency contact details, so we can provide the best support to your child. Plus, you can update this anytime and we will automatically receive those new details.

How it works

  • You’ll receive an email invite to share information with the Backcountry Nature Preschool after you register.
  • Click ‘Complete Request’ to create a free account, or log in if you already have an existing ePACT account.
  • Enter the required information, like medical conditions, and share it with the Backcountry Nature Preschool so that administration and program staff have access. Please note, you must upload your child’s up-to-date immunization records for them to attend the Backcountry Nature Preschool.
