Things To Do Before Camp
- SEE THE DENTIST
A pre-summer visit to the dentist and/or orthodontist is a wise move.
- SEE THE DOCTOR
Having a check-up sometime before camp is another good idea. Please contact our office if your child is ill prior to camp.
- LABEL MEDICATIONS
Medications should be clearly labeled with the camper's name, type of medication, dosage, doctor's name, and any other pertinent information. Medications will be accepted at Adam Kronick's car at the bus pick-up location (look for the sign on his roof).
All campers traveling by air should bring their medication with them and give it to the camp staff on arrival.
- GET A MEDIC-ALERT BRACELET
Children who react to specific antibiotics or medications, or who have specific medical ailments, should wear a Medic-Alert bracelet that can be obtained through the Medic-Alert Foundation in your city. If your child falls into this category and does not already have one, please follow through.

- CHECK FOR LICE
In order to minimize occurrence at camp, it is important that your child is checked for head lice at least one week prior to coming to camp. If lice are detected on your child's scalp prior to camp, please contact our office.
We check for lice regularly at camp. If your child is found to have lice at camp, the camp nurses will treat you child in accordance with the treatments recommended by the Canadian Paediatric Society.
