Getting Ready for Camp

 

There is a lot to do as you prepare for camp!  Here are resources to help you:

Talisman Parent Handbook

Our Parent Handbook is packed with useful information you will need about opening and closing days, homesickness, food policies, laundry, schedules and more. Feel free to download or print it and use as a reference.

MEDICATION PACKAGING

Get signed up to have your child’s medications (prescription and over-the-counter) packaged for easy and mistake-free administration by our staff. We require the use of CampMeds as a safety measure for all of our campers. CampMeds packages medications in individual packets by time of administration, each printed with the camper’s name, date of birth, date and time to give meds and dosage, pill number and pill description.
