During the summer, CampMeds will provide the service of dispensing and pre-packaging campers’ medication in preparation for camp. All pills taken on a routine basis (including vitamins) will be individually packaged, sealed and sorted according to day and time of administration. Each individually sealed packet will be labeled with the camper’s name, medication(s), dosage, date and time to be given. Prescription pills that are taken “as needed” are packaged separately. If CampMeds is sent prescriptions for medication that is not in pill form (liquids, eye drops, etc), they will be dispensed accordingly and then sent directly to camp as well. Otherwise, please refer to camp policy as to how these medications are to be handled. All meds will arrive at camp several days prior to campers’ arrival.
