If you wish to come take your camper to lunch, you will need to sign them out with the Lead Counselor on duty. They will also need to be signed back in when returning to camp.

• If your camper needs to take medication during camp, please fill out the "Medication Authorization Form" and send the medication with your camper the first day of camp along with the medication in the original container!
• Camp administrators will be the ones administering the medication during camp.
