Photographs are very useful, as are written accounts from both the injured person and anyone who may have witnessed the injury.
Many parties may potentially be liable for your child's injuries. With any personal injury suit, there may be multiple parties who could be held responsible.

An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to listen to the facts surrounding your child's injury and advise you on the likelihood of success.
Hopefully your child will return from camp unscathed. But it's always a good idea to prepared.
