Program Support - Allergies
If you or your child has a severe allergy, please register as early as possible for programs and submit a completed Program Support Package for Disabilities and Allergies. This will give us time to help you work out a safety strategy. In most cases, children with life-threatening allergies must be accompanied by an adult who can administer emergency medication.
For sessions 3.5 hours or less, participants requiring emergency medical support, such as an epi-pen, must have an adult on site. For sessions over 3.5 hours, such as summer camps, children with life-threatening allergies may participate independently after completing a series of forms (including one from a doctor) and meeting with staff well in advance of the start date. In upper level aquatic courses taken to become a lifeguard or swim instructor (Bronze Star level and higher), staff are trained and able to assist with emergency medication. Registration for sessions requires participants to confirm they have emergency medication and bring their emergency medication to each class.
For more information for participants with allergies, please contact the location where you plan to register.
