Medical Forms

If you have not yet completed your Medical/Hospital Authorization form and your Medical History Form, please do so ASAP.

 

 

Please Note: These forms are mandatory for your child to attend camp; children will not be permitted into camp without completed forms.

CampMinder Electronic Health Form

For campers 12+, we HIGHLY ENCOURAGE you to get vaccinated for COVID-19 before camp. Please click here for more information. Getting vaccinated keeps you and all of camp safe.

 

Please ensure that your child is up-to-date with their vaccinations, especially tetanus. Please ensure you review ALL information and update anything that has changed (OHIP info, medications, etc).

 

If you are having trouble filling out or submitting these forms, please contact the office as soon as possible:info@campramah.com or 416-789-2193.

Summer Medication

Our infirmary is stocked with a variety of over-the-counter drugs. Please note that provincial law requires that all medications be kept in the infirmary at camp.

 

Medication drop-off will be with bag drop off and COVID testing at Beth Emeth on July 5th. If you are not in Toronto, please bring all medications to drop off at camp.

 

There can be NO medications in the cabin. This includes Tylenol, Advil, Vitamins, etc. If you will be sending medications to camp with your child, please make sure you print out the medication page from the medication section of your camper’s Medical Form; if you have not completed this form, please do so at your earliest convenience and place all the medications in a resealable plastic bag. If the medication(s) requires refrigeration, please come prepared with your own ice-packs and advise the staff at medication drop-off on July 5.

 

If you are able, please make an effort to ensure that the medication comes to camp in a blister pack.Pharmacies will fill blister pack orders if they are requested at the time you place your order. Beginning in 2022, all medications must be in blister packs.

 

If you are having trouble, please contact the office:info@campramah.com or 416-789-2193.

Medication Vacation

We understand that some parents wish to give their child a “vacation” from their regular school-year dose of medication over the summer. Often, this is because camp is assumed to be a less stressful environment than school. While camp is a time for relaxed fun, campers (and staff) still require their executive function skills to manage successfully in the daily camp environment. This is an important decision, and an individual one. We ask that you discuss it with your physician before considering taking your child off medication for the summer. Please note that, in general, we do not support “medication holidays” at camp.

Lice

Please check or have someone professionally check your child’s head for lice no more than 3 days before they come to camp. A lice check can be done by you, a nurse, doctor, or a “lice specialist” in your community.

 

It is imperative that your child DOES NOT come to camp with lice: it is a nuisance to all concerned! If your child has been treated prior to coming to camp, please inform the camp immediately, and please make sure all lice and nits have been removed.

Dental

Please make sure all dental work is completed prior to camp. Visiting the dentist during camp results in a disruption of your child’s program, and costs associated with any treatment will be charged to you.

Infirmary (The Marp)

Our infirmary is well staffed. There is always a doctor and a team of registered nurses in camp. To contact our Infirmary directly over the summer, please dial 416 789 2193 ext. 2507
