HEALTH FORM 2016


CAMP BOURNEDALE HEALTH FORM-  

Health forms must MUST BE FILLED OUT COMPLETELY BY A PARENT/GUARDIAN and SIGNED BY CHILD'S PHYSICIAN which gives permission to the Camp Bournedale nurse to administer a pain reliever/fever reducer in case of an emergency.  If you do not want to give the nurse permission to give your child any medication (even if they get a fever) while at camp you must sign under the “I do not give my permission…”. If your child is currently on medication or will be on medication during our overnight trip and needs medication administered while at Bournedale you also need to have your child's physician sign the form and list all medications (even OVER THE COUNTER MEDS) and directions for administering the medication.  You will have to bring your child's prescription meds to school on the morning of the departure in the ORIGINAL PRESCRIPTION bottle with the instructions on the bottle.  Our school nurse will be checking medications and health forms prior to departure.  Please return the health forms to Fox Hill ASAP.  Please contact our school nurse or Mr. Lisano regarding any questions about the health form/medications.
