Forms for camp There are at least 4 forms that must be completed for every camper, and more for those needing medication while at camp. Turn completed forms (except medication forms) in to your student’s Science Teacher ASAP. All forms can be accessed by: Memorial School Website Activities tab 6 th grade camp
Medication All medication must be turned into the MMS School Nurse (Mrs. Weber) on the Thursday before leaving for camp. All medication, (including OTC meds), must be in the original container and must have the appropriate forms signed by a physician. Medication forms and meds should be in a labeled (child’s first and last name) plastic bag. If you have questions pertaining to medication please Mrs. Weber or call MMS prior to camp! ABSOLUTELY NO medications should be carried by the student or packed in the student’s luggage.
Emergencies In the event that your child is hurt during our stay at camp, and it is determined that your child needs more medical attention than can be provided by the camp nurse, your child will be transported by appropriate means to Hillcrest Hospital. Phone number at camp in the event of an emergency at home is (216) This number is for emergencies only! Please, do not call to “check” on your child.
Showers Campers will have the opportunity to shower at least once a day or more if needed! While showers have private stalls, they may bring a bathing suit to shower in if they would like.
Discipline Safety is our number one concern! Any student who poses a threat to his, or another camper’s safety, or has disciplinary problems, may, at the discretion of the facilitator, be required to leave camp without a refund. Parents would be responsible to provide transportation home. Mentor Public Schools code of conduct is enforced at all times.

Any student not attending the Mentor Schools Outdoor Education Program (camp) for any reason other than illness, will be required to be in attendance at Memorial Middle School and will be placed in an appropriate setting for the duration of the camp program.
