    • The camp has never collected the meds. We have never been asked to bring a prescription or to turn them in. We note the meds on the health forms and kids are responsible for taking their meds. Now, I’m not saying I agree with that 100%, but that what it has been for the now five years we have been attending this camp. I’m more concerned that the scoutmaster felt it acceptable to go through totes without scouts present. I don’t feel this models trustworthiness at all. He disagrees and basically said, “turn me in to council”. So, before I do, I was wondering the policy for searching a scouts belongings.  Sorry, this is summer camp
    • If this was at summer camp, what was the Camp's policy?  The camp I attended required ALL meds (youth AND adults) be turned in during medical check in and were held at the health lodge.  Anyone needing a dose had to report to the health lodge to have it recorded.  If you didn't show up, they came looking for you.  Inhalers and epi=pens were the exception, of course.
    • NCAP HS 508:  Specific Requirements of the Standard: A . The camp requires that all prescription and over-the-counter
      (OTC) medications be stored under lock (including those requiring refrigeration), except when in the controlled presence of health care staff or other adult leader responsible for administration and/or dispensing medications .   All bsa camps will require prescriptions to be turned in as part of the standards of running a BSA camp. So even if in general they could keep medicines, at summer camp they cannot. this does not cover the issue with the SM going through their stuff, which i think could be handled better.
