Please send only the number of doses needed plus medication needed for one extra day.
Medication at camp will be dispensed at mealtimes and bedtime. Medications can be dispensed at other times only if medically necessary and only if specific times are written on the enrollment medical form. You are responsible to check that your camper’s prescriptions on the Camp Krem Medical Form and online application form (CampSite Parent Dashboard) are written exactly how and when the medication is to be given. (For example, if the med is to be taken only as needed, the prescription must be written that way.)
If your camper arrives without medication pre-packaged, you will either be given blister packs and asked to pre-package your camper’s medication yourself, or be charged a $200 service fee to offset the considerable time and care we require to ensure correct timing and dosages.
Birth Control pills and “as-needed” (PRN) pills are an exception and can be sent in the original packaging. Liquids, creams, inhalers, powders and injectable medicines are to be delivered to Camp Krem in their original packaging, with clear dispensing instructions included.
Camp Krem stocks most over the counter items such as aspirin, acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil), antihistamine (Benadryl), antacids (Tums), antibiotic ointments, hydrocortisone anti-itch creams (Cortaid), Band-Aids, etc. so there is no need to send these medications if they are taken on an as-needed (PRN) basis.
Please feel free to email our Health Center Staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 831-338-3210 with any questions.
Thank you for your support in making your camper’s stay at Camp Krem as safe as possible and in a more efficient manner.
