How Should I Pack Medication
There are several nurses at camp that handle all medication. Everything from the basic to the very serious. It is not uncommon for kids to bring medication to camp. Here are a few things you can do to help us make sure your child receives the care they need while at camp.
Packing & Labeling Medication
- Please send all medication in the bottle it comes in. The prescription direction are on that bottle. This is important for the nurses to have the bottle with the prescription.
- Please put all medication in a plastic baggie labeled with your childs name.
- This includes any inhalers, topical medications and any diabetes testing supplies.
- If the medication needs to be cooled we will have coolers that can be used for traveling to and from camp.
Medication Use at Camp
- Nurses are the only people distributing medication at camp. This includes aspirin, tylenol, basic 1st aid...etc.
- If your child has an inhaler or a medication that needs to be kept close to them. Their counselor will be educated on how and when to administer the medication by the nurse. They will carry the medication on their person and administer it to the individual camper when needed.
- Counselors receive a paper with each child and their necessary medication needs. They are responsible for getting the child to the nurse to take their medication. If they are late or miss their there dosage they are called into the nurses office to make sure the child has received their medication.
- Most medications are taken during meal times. There is a nurses table where children report to receive and take their medication within the cafeteria.
Medication Turn In
- On Monday we ask that when you arrive that you turn in your child’s medication to one of our assigned counselors. They will be in charge of the medication until we arrive and camp and it is turned into the nurse.
