   3.  Notwithstanding the provisions of Title VIII of the education law,
 any person, firm, corporation, or association that operates a children's

 permit  pursuant  to section thirteen hundred ninety-three of this arti-
 cle, shall be authorized to employ or contract with a  physician,  nurse
 practitioner, physician assistant, registered nurse, or licensed practi-
 cal  nurse  OR  EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN to act as a designated camp

 health  director  for the sole purpose of providing health services that
 benefit campers and staff at the camp while the camp is in operation. In

 ment,  but shall be informed of such treatment as medically necessary to

 LICENSED PROFESSIONAL PROVIDING SERVICES, BUT SHALL BE INFORMED OF  SUCH
 TREATMENT  AS MEDICALLY NECESSARY TO ENSURE THE WELL-BEING OF THE CAMPER
 AND STAFF.
