Student information is confidential and stays with SEACAMP Instructors at all times. In regards to prescription medications, SEACAMP Instructors are not authorized to hold or administer prescription mediation to students – with the exception of emergency medication (i.e. Epi Pen) which staff are able to administer in an emergency situation. Students that need to take prescription medication(s) during camp will be responsible to hold and administer medication(s) themselves.

SEACAMP Instructors are not able to address or help remedy situations they are not made aware of. Students are required to communicate any health problems or concerns. If your child becomes ill or injured while attending SEACAMP San Diego, we will, of course, make sure that parents are kept informed about their child’s situation and progress. Whenever possible, parents/guardians will be included in decisions regarding their child’s care.
