Medication Packaging Policy for Rx and OTC medications/supplements

We require your camper’s medication to be pre-packaged by a pharmacy, or by you, before he or she arrives at Camp.  This policy is in place to streamline the medicaiton administration process and minimize potential medication errors.  Your camper will also spend less time waiting in line and our nurses will have more time to devote to your camper’s other healthcare needs.  

All medication and supplements in pill formmust be pre-packaged in order to be distributed to a camper while at camp.Pills must be packaged separately by day and delivery time (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Bedtime), in a closed packaging system, and out of their original bottles

All liquid, powder, or “as needed” medications or supplements must be sent in their original packaging with clearly outlined instructions on when and how to dispense.

These are the only acceptable packaging systems for all Camp Krem events. Please make sure to send all original bottles with an extra dose for prescriptions, supplements, and over the counter medications with your camper for identification purposes. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 831-338-3210 or email healthcenter@campingunlimited.org.

We will accept several forms of packaging (listed below).

  1. Multi-Dose Strip Packaging

Multi-Dose Strip packaging consists of individually sealed compartments which contain all medications in pill form that are to be taken at a particular med pass time.

2. Parent Filled Pillbox/Organizer or Pill Baggies

There are many different styles of organizers. Please ensure each day and time of delivery is clearly marked, and corresponds with the dates your camper will be at camp.

3. Multi-Dose Blister Packs

Each blister pocket contains all the medication, in pill form, that is to be taken at a particular med pass time. These can often be ordered online.

We will NOT accept Unit-Dose blister packs in which each individual medication has its own blister pack.

Please send only the number of doses needed, plus medication needed for one extra day.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the camper’s medications and administration instructions are accurate and up-to-date within your Camp Krem Account “Forms and Documents” section (Health Form 1). Dispensing instructions (name, delivery time, dosage, etc.) must be detailed clearly and precisely for When and How each medication is to be provided. Details must match the dosing instructions on the prescription bottle. For any dosing or delivery instructions that have changed from the bottle instructions, you must provide a physician’s note verifying the change.

If your camper arrives without medication pre-packaged, you will either be given blister packs and asked to pre-package your camper’s medication, or be charged a $200 service fee to offset the considerable time and care that will be required 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 heathcenter@campingunlimited.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.
