4. What if my child takes medication daily?
All prescription and over-the-counter medications should be noted in the Medical History Form and please complete the Medication Form.
All medications should be in the original container with the original label, listing the prescription information clearly.
Medication not sent as listed above cannot be administered to your camper.
5. What if my camper uses an inhaler or epi-pen?
Please make sure that is noted on the Medical History Form, and that you have completed the Epi-Pen - Inhaler Form.
NESC will need written verification from your child's primary health care provider confirming that he/she has knowledge and skills to safely administer the emergency medication at camp. With proper verification, your child will be allowed to keep the emergency equipment on his/her possession during camp.
6. Can my camper bring their phone, tablet, or other electronic device?
No. We are dedicted to providing an outdoor experience without the distractions of electronics; therefore we require all electronic devices to be left at home.
If you wish to send a phone with your child, it will be kept in the camp office and used with monitoring for calls home ONLY at designated meal times or in the evening. Campers can request to use the office phone during meal times if needed.
7. Does my camper need to bring money?
No, we provide the meals and snacks. If your child needs anything while at camp, we will either provide it or ask you to bring it for them. Campers do not need money for any reason.
New England Sports Camps and the Alfond Youth & Community Center are not responsible for any lost or stolen items. We encourage families to label personal belongings with the camper's name.
