How are medications handled at Y Camp?
For overnight and day camp, we request that you check all medications (prescription and over-the-counter) in with our staff at check-in. You will need to have instructions prepared to ensure that all are administered properly. During overnight camp sessions there will be a registered nurse on-site to sign-off on all medication administration at the end of each day. Unless necessitated, all medications are delivered at breakfast, lunch, dinner and bed time. All staff are First Aid and CPR certified and only approved staff will administer any medications. All medications are kept in a locked storeroom on camp.
For groups and schools, we request that an adult on-site is selected and approved to administer medications. We also request that medications are kept in a locked, safe location to prevent misadministration or loss. For more information, please speak with your Y Camp staff liaison or call our offices.
