• It is imperative that we receive the necessary completed health forms before the beginning of camp. Parent and Doctor signatures are required on the forms.
• If your child has been exposed to any communicable diseases/illnesses (i.e. lice, measles, chicken pox, influenza) within 3 weeks prior to camp please inform us as quickly as possible.
Please remember: NO child will be permitted to attend camp if we have NOT received their health history & physicians forms.
• If your child has an orthodontic appliance, please schedule a checkup before camp and send the necessary replacement items for the summer (wax, bands, etc.).
• We work with a pre-packaged medication company for daily prescriptions and OTC medications. Details of this program will be emailed in the spring. This is a required service for all daily medications (including OTC and vitamins). IMPORTANT: Any refrigerated medications must be clearly marked on the inside and outside packaging “Refrigerate Upon Arrival.” Please call the camp office to advise when refrigerated medications are shipped and expected delivery date. It is important for any medications that need to be refrigerated are sent no earlier than the week before camp starts.
• Lifesaving medication such as EpiPens and rescue inhalers are to travel with your child on the bus/flight to camp. Specific instructions for emergency medications (including EpiPens and rescue inhalers) will be emailed in June.
• Camp stocks medications such as Tylenol, Advil, Benadryl, Tums, etc. There is no need to have these medications sent to camp.
• If necessary, any pharmacy charges, or costs incurred by outside medical or dental providers, will be charged to the credit card you provided on the Insurance Form. We will supply your insurance information to the provider at the time of visit/purchase but cannot guarantee it will always be applied. In these circumstances, if camp receives any charges, you will be invoiced accordingly and sent you a copy of the receipt so that you can submit a claim for reimbursement from your insurance company.
• If your child wears eyeglasses or contact lenses, please send enough replacement lenses and an extra pair of eyeglasses. Label clearly with name and bunk number.
All medication and vitamins will be kept in the Health Center - No exceptions!
