MEDICATION:

If a child is to receive medication while at camp, the Program Coordinator must have a completed Authorization to Administer Medication form on file. All medication must remain in the original container from the pharmacy.

 

ACCIDENTS & ILLNESSESS:

If a child is injured at our facility, a certified staff member will administer first aid. Parents then will be contacted in cases that are serious enough to warrant communication. If a staff member is unable to reach the parent(s), the emergency phone number (which should have been provided by the parent) will be called in an effort to find someone to come for the child. If an emergency occurs and parents/emergency contact person cannot be reached, an ambulance will be called at parent’s expense.

 

SIGN – IN/OUT:

A daily attendance log must be kept on all children that attend the program. Parents are asked to walk their child in and sign them in daily. Parents are also required to walk in and sign their children out daily
