Health Center & Medications

Please make sure your health form is complete in your child’s account. If your child takes prescription or necessary routine medications, there is a form in the registration system that needs to be completed and signed by your physician.

MEDICATIONS- Prescription & Over-the-Counter:

All medications will be dispensed by the health manager, only from the original package or prescription bottle. When sending your campers medication please send the amount needed for the time at camp please do not send more or less medication than is needed for the time your camper is at camp.

Over-the-counter medications and first aid supplies will be provided for participants. Please DO NOT send over-the-counter (OTC) medication in your camper’s bag if you need to send OTC medications please make sure to include them in your campers account and have a doctor sign off on the prescription medication form. You will then need to make sure these medications are checked in with the Camp Health manager when you arrive.

Camper Medication Form

HEALTH CHECK:  All campers will take part in a visual/verbal health screening at check-in to ensure that they are free from indicators of illness or communicable disease or injury that may prevent them from participation at camp.  We will do a temperature check for all campers, if the camper has a temperature of 100.0F or higher, your camper will not be allowed to stay at camp.  The camper can return during the week if the temperature is 98.6 for at least 24 hours. 

Please make sure a copy of your health insurance card is loaded in to your account prior to your arrival at camp.

HEALTH CARE:  Camp Don Lee has a well-equipped and professionally staffed health center available 24 hours each day.  Prompt attention is given in any accident or injury.  Parents are notified if the camper requires medical care off-site.

FOOD SAFETY:

Our camp kitchen facilities are inspected annually by the NC Department of Health & Human Services, Food Protection Program. We have consistently had an overall A rating for food preparation, general health and safety, water supply, and sanitation.  Balanced meals are served to campers daily.  A variety of snacks are available to campers in the camp store. Special dietary needs should be noted on the health form and discussed with our health care provider when you drop off your camper.
