during the camp hours and/or if an alternative medication could be prescribed that does not require administration
during camp hours.

1. As the parent/guardian of the above named camper, I request and authorize the administration of said camper of
the prescribed medication referred to above, using the procedures outlined below, by Laurier camp personnel, who I
acknowledge are not medically trained to administer medication.

contact the parent/guardian to come and administer the medication.
Therefore it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to insure that all medication is in the original container and all
information regarding dispensing is clearly marked.
4. I also understand and accept that if problems arise with the administration of the medication: for example,
(including without limitation) refusal by the camper to take the medication, complaints of side effects, or possible
allergic reactions, then the camp will immediately discontinue further doses and inform the parent/guardian, at the
earliest practical opportunity, as to the nature of the problem. It is then the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to
decide if the camper’s physician needs to be consulted to assess whether changes to the prescribed medication
and/or administrative procedures referred to are necessary. A new copy of this medication form must be completed
for any change in the medication prescribed and/or the administrative procedure referred to above.
5. I also understand and accept that the camp leader/designate can reserve the right to refuse to administer
treatment to the camper if the necessary information is not provided by the parent/guardian.
6. I confirm that I have asked the camper’s physician if the medication must be administered during the camp hours
and he/she has also responded and advised as such.
7. The information will be used only to assist with meeting the health needs of the camper.
8. If there are any questions about the information gathered on this form, please contact the camp leader directly.
9. This request will terminate at the end of each individual camp enrolment period.
10. I hereby release the Wilfrid Laurier summer camp, its employees and agents from all manner of actions, causes of
action, suits, losses, damages or injuries, however caused, arising out of the administration or failure to administer
medication as provided herein, and I do also hereby indemnify the said camp, its employees or agents for any losses
or damages sustained by them as a result of such actions or proceedings being commenced against them by myself
or the camper or any other parent or guardian of said camper.
11. I hereby acknowledge that I have read and fully understand the terms set out herein.
