Medication on Check-In Day
NEW THIS YEAR!! Medication Blister Packs!!
In an effort to update our Health Center practices and assure the best service to your campers we've purchased one time use Blister Packs for each camper who will take medications during their camp stay. A Blister Pack is a container that organizes medications by day/time spaces to be taken according to their prescription regimen. The Blister Pack allows you to fill the exact dosage needed. These will need to be filled in the Dining Hall during check in. Don’t worry, we will have a staff member ready to assist you with this process. To expedite this process feel free to provide your own reusable Blister Pack prior to check in so that all you'll need to do when you arrive is transfer the medication, however, please do not pre-fill the blister pack prior to arrival -- All medications must still be brought in original containers " and filled on site during check in.
