Please inform the Kidspirit office of any allergies and/or medications your child is currently taking. You can do this at the time of registration, or by logging into your ideal-logic account and editing your camper's medical information.

If your camper requires medication at camp, please stop by the office before camp begins to fill out an additional form and bring us the medication in its original container to the Kidspirit office, in 125 Lagton Hall.

All medication will be kept in the Kidspirit office and dispensed as prescribed by a doctor.

Please keep allergies and other medical needs updated with Kidspritit so we may provide your camper everything they need!
