Immunization records are part of the Health Exam Record now. Over-the-counter medications will be listed and authorized by the parent online. If your child requires any other OTC medications not listed on line (see the information packet also) , they must be listed on a Medication Administration Form.

SPECIAL HEALTH NEEDS PLAN OF CARE FORM - to be completed by the parent/guardian
A Special Health Needs Plan of Care must be completed for every camper indicating if a child does not require a plan or that they do, with details listed.
