Medicine Containers

Please send enough medication for the entire time at camp in the original package/bottle that identifies the prescribing physician, name of drug, dosage, and frequency. NOTE: If medicines are brought in any other container other than the original, you will be asked to visit the local pharmacy (about 15 minutes away) to obtain the original packaging at your own time and expense. Having a "Pill Counter" box for daily dispersion is okay; however, the original container must be present as well.

Epipens

Swamp Camp stores epipens in strategic locations for emergency purposes pursuant to GA Statute O.C.G.A. § 31-1-15 (click button to view statute); however, these are not for general consumption. If your child requires an epi-pen, whether by choice or necessity, you are expected to provide that epipen and communicate this with the Medical Staff and the counselor treating it as any other prescribed medicine according to our check-in policies and procedures. Do NOT expect us to provide an epipen for you. Epi-pens are to be kept on the camper's person at all times.

NO MEDICINE IS TO BE KEPT BY THE CAMPER IN HIS OR HER CABIN.
The medical staff oversees the administration of all medications.

ACCOUNTABILITY

Medications are generally administered at mealtimes and/or when specifically prescribed. We will do our best to remind your child to take his/her medications, but it is not the responsibility of the counselors or the staff to remind your child to take his/her medicines. IF YOUR CHILD IS UNABLE TO FULFILL THIS RESPONSIBILITY, then perhaps he/she is not mature enough to attend camp.

Help is given to the youngest campers by their counselors and via general announcements as reminders. As the campers' age increases we expect their responsibility to increase as well. Please discuss with your child before coming to camp so they have a safe and medically responsible week. Thanks!
