3.) Allergies / related care plan
4.) Self administration of medications
For further information, read below
HEALTH FORMS: All campers must fill out and return the Camp Health Exam Record to the camp. Our form online is a template for what is required for our camp, so that those who are traveling from outside of Connecticut have the same information as Connecticut residence to fulfill the STATE of Connecticut requirements. IF, you are from Connecticut the “BLUE” health form has more information than required but is welcome in replacing our form. If you are from outside of Connecticut, please make sure any Health form you provide us has the minimum information on our form included in your information presented.
Additional forms that may be required:
SELF-ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION FORMS: IF your camper is going to be self-administering medication, you MUST fill out the Self-Administration of Medication form. This includes over-the-counter medications as well as prescription…so please look at the form online.
INDIVIDUAL CARE PLAN: Section 428-3(a) requires a child’s health record to include information regarding disabilities or special health care needs such as allergies, special dietary needs, dental problems, hearing or visual impairments, chronic illness, developmental variations or history of contagious disease, and an individual plan of care for the child with special health care needs or disabilities. The plan shall be developed with the child’s parent(s) and health care provider and updated as necessary. Such plan of care shall include appropriate care of the camper in the event of a medical or other emergency and shall be signed by the parent(s) and staff responsible for the care of the camper.
Examples of special healthcare needs and disabilities are provided above. A written individual plan of care is required when a child has a special healthcare need or disability AND it is necessary that special care be taken or provided while the child is at camp. The special healthcare need or disability which necessitates the individual plan of care is typically documented by health practitioner on the physical examination record or on a medication order and may be supported by accompanying documentation.
If the health record of a child and/or accompanying documentation documents a special healthcare need of disability (e.g. child ADHD), but does not require that special care be taken or provided during the time the child is at camp, an individual plan of care is not required.For example, the mere fact that a child wears glasses or is allergic to a medication, does not require an individual plan of care, as special care of the child during camp may not be necessary.Similarly, if a child has an order for a medication but no other special care is required beyond the administration of the medication, a separate care plan is not required.
ALL Forms can be uploaded directly to your campers account (see “FORMS” tab of our website for instructions on how to upload). Forms on the website are templates of what is required for camp, so as long as it has all the information it does not have to be our exact form. PRIOR TO CAMP, PLEASE BRING THE FORMS WITH YOU TO CHECK-IN or UPLOAD THEM TO THE CAMPERS ACCOUNT PRIOR TO THE START OF CAMP. DO NOT SEND THEM IN THE MAIL or E-MAIL THEM TO US!
