Revised Authorization for the Administration of Medication Sample Form

A revised Authorization for the Administration of Medication by School, Child Care and Youth Camp Personnel sample form has been developed.  This form incorporates all of the state requirements regarding medication administration that apply to child day care programs, youth camps, and schools and may be used to authorize the administration of medication to children that participate in these settings.  This form consolidates information previously contained on separate forms into one form to reduce the documentation requirements placed on parents and guardians whose school age children require medications in school and also attend childcare and/or youth camp programs.

Lyme Disease Resources

The Epidemiology and Emerging Infection Program at the Department of Public Health has made available many resources concerning Lyme Disease [click here]. Additional information can also be found on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website [click here]. Youth camps may order FREE signs [click here] directly from CDC related to the presence of ticks for posting throughout their camp.

April 2012

On April 3, 2012, the Youth Camp Licensing Program finalized its transition to a new licensing system.  The previous technology environment in which the Department of Public Health Youth Camp Licensing Program operated included several stand-alone, non-integrated databases that were old and ill equipped to handle the ever increasing needs to collect, store, manage and disseminate data.  The new licensing system, known as eLicense, takes advantage of new technology capabilities that will increase efficiency and service quality for licensed youth camps, researchers, parents, the general public, and other interested stakeholders.  The new user-friendly system allows the public to conduct on-line searches of youth camps and displays basic license and inspection information, substantiated complaint history information, and formal discipline history information.  Additionally, eLicense enables rosters of licensed youth camps and approved youth camp directors to be downloaded, and allows the Department to collect valuable data related to licensing and monitoring activities.  Additional features expected to be implemented in the future include on-line renewal of licenses and posting of licensing inspection results on-line.

 


March 2012

The Department is pursuing changes to the youth camp regulations.  The proposed changes include, but are not limited to, changes as proposed by the Youth Camp Safety Advisory Council, an expansion of the list of acceptable providers of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the establishment of requirements for challenge courses, the establishment of standards for the storage of emergency medications, the elimination of the requirement to petition the department to administer certain medications, and technical corrections.  On April 10, 2012, the notice of these proposed regulations will be published in the Connecticut Law Journal and will be available for public comment for thirty (30) days.  A copy of the publication, information regarding the public comment period, and the proposed regulations are available by clicking on the links below.
