Is there a nurse on duty?
Summer at Norwood has a camp nurse on duty at all times during camp hours. This registered nurse is on hand to tend to any camper medical issues that arise during camp, including tending to minor injuries and illnesses and administering medications to campers who have submitted the proper forms.
What if children need to take medication?
All medication, prescription and non-prescription, will be administered by the camp nurse on duty. Campers that need to take prescribed or over-the-counter medication must have the appropriate medicine permission forms completed and submitted to Summer at Norwood. The Over-the-Counter Medication Permission Form and Prescribed Medication Permission Form can be downloaded from the Camp Forms page on the Summer at Norwood website. Campers will not be allowed to carry medication nor administer medication to themselves.
Can teachers administer medication?

Does the CIT program qualify for SSL hours?
Our Counselors-in-Training program provides an excellent learning opportunity for students in rising grades 8 and 9. Campers may earn SSL hours specifically for the time they spend assisting in classrooms with younger campers and running those activities, but not for the other hours spent in training, class work, and group activities.
