To free up our Wellness Center staff to attend to the increased health screening, testing, and treatment protocols likely required this summer, we strongly recommend all camper prescription medications, as well as any over-the-counter medications or vitamins taken daily, arrive at camp in pharmacy-prepared single dose packaging prepared by a pharmacy of your choice.
Medications in liquid or powder form, inhalers, and epinephrine pens must be sent in their original packaging with clearly labeled instructions on the container and the medication card (card sent in April) for dosage. Please do not send over-the-counter medications that are not taken daily, as these are already stocked in our Wellness Center. For over-the-counter medications taken daily, please have your pharmacy include those in the appropriate individual package(s) by dose if combining with prescription medication if possible.
You may choose any pharmacy to pre-package your camper’s medication. CVS is one of the large pharmacies that offers this service.
If you are unable to have your child’s medications in pharmacy-prepared single dose packaging (as noted and pictured above), please send all medication in the original prescription container with the pink medication card. The directions on the medication card must match the prescription container as prescribed by your child’s physician. Over-the-counter medication taken daily must also arrive at camp in the original package with directions included on the pink medication card.
Parents – Do NOT package your child’s medication in at-home pill boxes or baggies!
