In case the participant has to take medication on the campus, how is it managed?
Camps Ona Carbonell can provide an authorization sheet for taking medication. The tutor must sign it and specify the dose and the time at which it is to be taken. The medication should be provided to the director on the first day of the Camp, who will guard it and supply it according to the instructions in the drug authorization form. Contact us and we will send you the authorization sheet.
Can they take medication “just in case,” that is, because they are prone to headache, stomach, etc.?
Underage participants may not, in any case, carry medication in the backpack. If the participant needs to take medication at a specific moment, the director must have signed the authorization sheet to take medication, and also have the medication, which will be returned on the last Camp day. If we do not have this signed sheet and the participant gets sick, we will take him to the doctor. Contact us and we will send you the authorization sheet.
What happens if my son or daughter gets ill?
We bring the participant to the doctor and call the parents to inform them about the situation. Once they have been treated, we report what the doctor has said and, if they have received a medication, and what it is. In that moment, we follow the doctor’s instructions.
What should I take to Ona Carbonell Camp?
