Oregon Summer Star does not discriminate against children with special needs, but DOES require parents to complete this form in order to provide a safe and enjoyable camp experience for campers. This form is to be used to notify us of any health, mobility or disability needs your camper will have while attending camp. We will make every reasonable effort to accommodate those needs for your camper.
We highly encourage that you work with us prior to the start of the camp (contact us via email) to ensure proper accommodations have been made for your child to have a wonderful camp experience. (Please note: It is NOT recommended that camp be used as an ‘off’ period for your child’s standard medication schedule. Behaviors that are typically modified by medication can be very disruptive to the overall camp experience for your child and the other children in attendance. If your child requires medication, please provide camp staff with all of the necessary information to ensure your child is able to enjoy their time while at camp.)
If YES, please upload, email a copy to email@example.com, or bring a paper copy to drop-off.
Please complete the following information about you child's health insurance, physician, and current medications. All medications and OTC are administered by our camp nurse, we will return all unused medications at the end of the week.
