MEDICATION PACKAGING

Due to the large number of medications given at Camp Rainbow, we are changing the way the medications are brought to camp.  We will require that medications (pills/tablets/capsules) be packaged in approximately 2” x 4” packets with the camper’s name, date, and time to be given.  We are asking that the camper’s pharmacy package the medications, but the caregiver can package them also.

Campers are involved in various activities throughout the day so medications are given at mealtimes and bedtime.  Those times are 8:00 am, 12:00 pm, 5:00 pm, and 8:30 pm.  If the medications are not packaged when the camper arrives, we will have the packets available for the caregiver to package them for the camper with the date and time they are to be given.  Please send only the medications the camper will need while at camp.  We have ibuprofen, Aspirin, Maalox, and other over the counter medications available.  We will give those to the camper when needed.  

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.  If you have questions about how to package the mediations, please call Betty Snyder at 660-646-1026 after 5:00 pm, Mon-Fri.
