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.

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. (This includes supplements and OTC medications.)

Over-The-Counter (OTC) Medications

Every expedition we send out has their own stock of OTC medication. 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, as needed:

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