    I am interested in sending my 2 boys to camp, they have done lots of triathlons over several years.
    I would like to know if you are able to administer medication or oversea medication to my son while he is there?
    If there is any more information you can share with me it would be much appreciated.
    How many kids attend.
    The number of assistants you have?
    Sleeping arrangements etc?

      Hello Mary,
      For the safety of all participants, we request medications, especially prescription meds, be “checked in” with our health safety officer when athletes check-in for the camp. Throughout the duration of camp they will remain Legally we can not administer medications but we can remind athletes that meds need to be taken and to obtain them. When an athlete registers, specific questions are asked about medications and allergens. Any athlete that indicates medications will receive contact from either myself or the Health Safety Officer prior to attending camp

      We expect between 25-30 athletes

      All national camps maintain a ratio of 5:1 athlete to coach ratio

      There are 4 same gender athletes in a dorm suite with a common living and kitchen area. Each athlete has their own bedroom and will share a bathroom/2 athletes. A common area with kitchen
