Health and Wellness
Health and Wellness has been a guiding value for us summer after summer. The health, safety, and well-being of our campers is our top priority. Please use this section to familiarize yourself with our practices.
Beber Camp meets the health and safety standards of the State of Wisconsin and the American Camp Association.
To ensure the best possible quality of care in our health center, we require all campers who take daily prescriptions, supplements, vitamins and/or over-the-counter medications in pill form to enroll in a pharmacy service provided by Pack My Rx through their website. This service ensures higher efficiency, lower risk of error, reduced waiting time for your campers, and increased focus on their overall health.
We do expect 100% participation from families with campers who will need medication in pill form while at camp. The only exception is if the pharmacy notifies us that they are unable to accept your insurance or fill a particular medication.
Please register online at their website. They will package your camper’s meds and deliver them directly to camp prior to your child’s arrival. All pills will be pre-packaged in dose/blister packs. Pack My Rx will manage every step of the process, including insurance payments, dispensing and delivery.
Once you create your Pack My Rx account, please complete your camper’s medication profile, select the session s/he is attending, upload copies of your health insurance documents, and provide a credit card for payment of any fees.
If you’ve already completed your camper’s physical, no need to make another doctor’s appointment – you can just fax/email the forms to your doctor’s office. Once completed by your child’s doctor, mail the prescriptions to Pack My Rx. All medication orders must be received 30 days prior to start of the session. All orders after that will incur a $30 charge plus any expedited shipping charges.
If you have problems submitting any of your forms, documents, or insurance information, please call the pharmacy directly at (888) 598-6337.
If your child is beginning to take a new medication or has a change to existing medications immediately prior to camp, you must contact Pack My Rx at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-598-6337 to order medications.
We strongly discourage putting kids on a “medication vacation” while at camp. Camp is not a time to try a new medication or remove a child from a medication. If this is unavoidable, we request that you consult with a camp director or nurse prior to camp.
1. All campers must have received two doses of vaccine (Measles, Mumps, Rubella), with the first dose being on or after the first birthday and the second dose no less than 4 weeks (28 days) after the first dose.

The interval between the first and third doses must be at least four months. Proof of prior or current infection, if verified by laboratory evidence, may be substituted for proof of vaccination.

Should a camper need emergency medical attention and treatment, we are less than 5 miles from the ProHealth Medical Group Clinic and Emergency Room.
Your camper’s health, safety, and well-being is our top priority. Our medical staff provide excellent medical attention should a camper be admitted to the health center, need to take medication, or need a pick me up.
