It is our continued goal to both meet the needs of campers who require medication as camp while at the same time comply with state regulations regarding this practice. To this end, we will continue to work with CampMeds Inc., a pre-packaging medication program founded by a former camp nurse. CampMeds has been servicing the camping industry for the past sixteen years and they provide a convenient service of dispensing, packaging and shipping medications directly to summer camps.
Our policy and procedure for dispensing and administering medicine requires camp families to have ALL of your child’s medicine dispensed by CampMeds and sent to camp prior to their arrival.
CampMeds will fill:
Prescription medication in pill form (daily and “as needed”)
Prescription medication in liquid form (daily and “as needed”)
Prescription nose sprays, eye/ear drops, inhalers and creams/ointments
Non prescription items (OTC) such as allergy medication (daily and “as needed”)
Vitamins (for specialty vitamins/supplements, email CampMeds to confirm they can provide)
The exceptions are: Rescue Inhalers, Accutane, growth hormone, insulin, injections and Lactaid.
Note: our camp stocks most over the counter items such as Tylenol, Advil, Benadryl, etc. so there is no need to have CampMeds dispense typical OTC items.
If your camper will be taking medication at camp this summer, please visit their website, www.campmeds.com for additional information and to register your camper.
We are confident that this program will continue to help us achieve our primary goal; the health, well-being and safety of your child.
