EpiPen Policy

for Overnight Camps


EpiPen Policy for Eagle Lake Overnight Camps

  • Campers with life-threatening/severe allergies that require an EpiPen must supply TWO EpiPens upon arrival at Eagle Lake.
  • One EpiPen must stay with the camper or counselor (depending on if the camper is authorized to self-carry), in their backpack, for the duration of the camp week.
  • The second EpiPen must stay with the Eagle Lake Medical Team for the duration of the camp week.
  • Both EpiPens must be unexpired.

 

Requirements for campers self-carrying their EpiPens:

  1.  EpiPen must be prescribed by camper’s physician with written authorization and instructions that the camper may “self-carry.”
  2. EpiPen must stay in the camper’s backpack or on their person in close proximity to them at all times.
  3. A camper who is self-carrying their EpiPen is encouraged to self-administer their EpiPen if needed. Alternatively, a member of the Eagle Lake staff can administer the EpiPen if the camper is unable to do so.

 

Requirements for Eagle Lake Staff carrying a camper’s EpiPen:

  1.  EpiPen must be prescribed by camper’s physician with written authorization and instructions for administration.
  2. Written authorization by the camper’s parent/guardian directing an Eagle Lake Staff member to carry the camper’s EpiPen must be provided upon camper check-in.

 

Please note:

*If an EpiPen that is carried by a camper or Eagle Lake staff member is deemed lost, parents will be immediately notified to coordinate a replacement EpiPen being secured.

* Eagle Lake Camps staff will always call 911 for any medical situation requiring the use of an EpiPen.

*Campers will not be allowed to attend camp if they do not have 2 unexpired EpiPens
