What if my child needs medication at camp?

Lake Poway Day Camp follows strict guidelines with camper medication. If your camper requires medication, please be sure to fill out all of the necessary paperwork that can be found on the Forms Page. We are unable to accept medication without these forms, which also require a physician's signature. On the 1st day of each camp week, we collect medication during sign-in, and store it in a locked area. During the camp day, medication is administered by our on-site camp lead. Inhalers and Epi-Pens will also be collected during sign-in. Group counselors will carry inhalers and Epi-Pen with them at all times to ensure they are accessible when necessary.
