Taking Medications at Camp
If a Scout will be taking any medications at Water World, you will need to complete the Medications online form in the Portal and then printout the Medication Card to be signed by parent and physician. This can be submitted anytime up to the day we leave for camp but completing it early ensures you have time to obtain the physician signature. At Water World, all medications will be held by a designated adult leader and made available at the appropriate times as indicated in the Portal sign-up process.  Please ensure that the medication information is accurate and current.
