Summer Camp Tips

posted Jun 8, 2011, 10:47 AM by Matt Smith

A Medform must be completed by anyone staying overnight at camp. It must be filled out and signed by an MD. Completed medical forms are good for 1 year. So if last year’s form was signed by an MD after July 1, it would be good for this year.

All medications are to be in the original bottle and in a zip lock baggie. Write the name of the medication, the dosage, and the child’s name on a 3x5 card and put that into the baggie. Only put enough medication in the bottles to last the week. This way, if the bottle is lost or forgotten, you won’t be missing all of the child’s medication. Medications will be stored in the nurses office only, except for inhalers and epi-pens.

We always meet at the parking lot kiddy corner to the Church. We will leave by 9AM. Anyone without a medform won’t be able to attend. In cases of hardship, I can usually work something out, but I need to know about it ahead of time.

The boys should pack enough clothes for 3 nights and 4 days of outdoor fun. A rain poncho is a good idea. A water bottle is a must. Shower gear, towels, lots of clean socks and underwear is also a must. A sleeping bag or similar set up will be needed as well. The boys will be in the pool every day. Swim trunks are required to swim in the pool. If an adult wants to get in the pool, he/she must also have swim wear, and must take the swim test given on the opening day of camp.

Bring some spending money as the trading post is open throughout the day and has candy, soda, and other things.

The camp will provide all food and eating utensils. 1 camp shirt also comes with the price of admission. We usually wear them on the last day.
