What if my camper takes regular medication?

If your child needs to take regular medication at camp, simply fill out our Permission to Administer Medication form when you register, detailing the exact guidelines and requirements for any medication your child takes. You can find that form here.

All medications should come to camp in their original packaging—we cannot accept medication separated in plastic bags or pill holders. We need a doctor’s signature giving us permission to administer ANY medications your child brings from home.

If you don’t want to provide a doctor’s note for the medications listed below, please sign our Over The Counter Medications waiver, allowing us to give your child what we have at the clinic, rather than bringing it from home.

When you register, you can sign our Over The Counter Medications waiver, giving us permission to give your child the basic medications we keep on hand at the clinic, as needed:

  • Aloe Gel (Sunburn)
  • Anbesol (Mouth Sores)
  • Antacid/Pepto (Upset Stomach)
