Health and Medication Forms

Parents/guardians need to complete health forms for their student for Camp Whittier and CIMI. They also need to have their physician/health provider complete the district medication form for any medications (prescription and non-prescription) that their student will take to camp.

These health forms are available below.

Camp Whittier

For Camp Whittier, we have created two informational videos:
