I have a similar story but a bit reversed.
Last summer, I worked at a boy's camp in Algonquin Park with my boyfriend. I ran ecology, he was head chef. It was a very isolated camp...on an island 10 minutes down an dirt road from the highway. You had to take a canoe or barget from there to get to the camp. Due to the remoteness, phones were often down and cellphone reception is sketchy. (But the camp does not allow them anyways...). On the main highway of the park, if you are injured, a medivac will take AT LEAST an hour. Even if they use the rescue copter. On the island it is longer, and there was nowhere for the helicopter to land. Plus, this was a tripping camp, so campers spent the majority of their time in the park camping, generally several hours from an access point where they could get to a phone.
For this reason, we DID NOT accept kids with nut allergies, especially peanuts. We also reccomended that kids with severe allergies try a different camp.
Well, the counsellors were picking up the kids to come up for the summer, these parents dropped their 7 year old off, said "btw, he is DEATHLY ALLERGIC TO PEANUTS, here is his Epe-pen" and bolted. Turns out they had lied on their application to the camp. The Director would not send him home. (god knows why...) So BF had to overhaul the entire dining hall. This kid got his own dishes (sterilized every day) a special 'nut free table' (since every other table always has PB & J on it). BF had to completely overhaul his menu for that month, cause peanuts did feature in the menu. The trip counsellors also had to overhaul their menus, because a lot of the trip food had peanuts, or possible contact with peanuts.
I just had to wonder...who risks their kid like that??? If he had had a reaction, he would most likely have died!
