Below are the University of Waterloo guidelines for day camps for children with an allergic reaction to nuts, insect bites, and/or specific drugs.
|The day camps will provide a separate lunch table at the parents request where children who have been identified as having a nut allergy will eat their lunch. The University of Waterloo cannot guarantee a nut-free environment. It is important that children with a risk of anaphylaxis or an anaphylactic reaction to any substance (food, insect bites, or drugs) be identified. They must carry with them at all times the appropriate EpiPen kit and a letter of permission or signed consent from a parent or guardian to allow for the injection to be given immediately in case of an emergency.|
Arts Computer Experience employees will do their utmost to provide a safe environment for campers with allergies through the camp’s policies regarding peanut/nut-free lunches and no sharing of food. Camp staff members have received training in administering EpiPens through the University of Waterloo Health and Safety Office.
The consent form below must be signed by a parent/guardian and returned to the Arts Computer Experience camp office. A copy will be kept in the camp office and the original will be placed with the camper’s EpiPen kit.
