Please Note: If your child will need medication during the course of his or her day, please read the following information and complete the appropriate forms above.
Below, please find our camp medication administration policy. Our summer programs wish to limit medication usage to camper self-administration (of a school age), with the exception of Epi-Pens. The program will keep the proper documentation on file. If your child brings to camp an inhaler, or other prescribed oral or topical medication, or a non-prescribed (over-the counter) oral or topical medication that may need to be provided, camper must be able to self-administer. Proper documentation should be submitted with the physical forms.
