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:
- EpiPen must be prescribed by camper’s physician with written authorization and instructions that the camper may “self-carry.”
- EpiPen must stay in the camper’s backpack or on their person in close proximity to them at all times.
- 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:
- EpiPen must be prescribed by camper’s physician with written authorization and instructions for administration.
- 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.
*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
