Our medication policy is primarily established to accommodate the administration of medications commonly prescribed by physicians for the treatment of short term illnesses and must abide by the following regulations:
- Keep all medication in the original container with prescription and direction label attached.
- Label the medication with the camper’s name, name of medication, dosage amount and time(s) of administration.
- Hand all medication to the camp manager or the front desk. The medication will be kept in the camp office and administered at the appropriate time(s). Medication that may need to be administered to your child instantly will be kept with their lead camp counselor.
- Medication is not allowed to be kept in campers backpacks or lunch bags.
- Medication will be returned each Friday at the end of the week.
All campers should bring a non-perishable lunch and beverage to camp daily unless you have purchased the lunch package upon signing up for PGH Summer Camp.

Unfortunately, we have a strict policy at our camps that all children must be potty trained in order to attend. If there is an accident at camp, it will be immediately addressed with the child’s parent or guardian.
Your campers should wear clothing appropriate for active play and for the weather. Keep in mind that campers at Oxford Athletic Club will have an hour of swim everyday and campers at North Park and Cool Springs may partake in outdoor water games throughout the week so we advise that your camper pack a bathing suit.
Participants who cancel 24 hours prior to the start of the day may submit a camp credit voucher request, which is subject to a processing fee. All camp credit vouchers will be $50-$100 less per week depending on the camp. This is a non-refundable cancellation fee.
You may also transfer camps. Any camp participant that may need to transfer camp weeks or programs must do so before May 1st. After May 1st, transfers are subject to processing fees.
The major items that your child should bring is a water bottle, spray sunscreen (if applicable – see sunscreen policy for more details), sneakers and a lunch if a meal package was not purchased.
If you are late to pick up your camper from a full day’s camp, ending at 3pm, your camper will be automatically enrolled in After Care and subsequently be charged. If you are late to pick up your child from After Care, you will be charged an additional $10. After Care runs until 5pm.
When you are registering your camper, you will come to a page where you can choose to add on Before or After Care and Lunch Packages. Make sure to save your username and password so that you can make changes or purchase additional add-ons after your camper’s initial registration.
