4.0 out of 5 stars Answers From The Camp Doctor September 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
It wasn't clear from the title and description that this is like a FAQ on medical and safety issues for parents thinking of sending their kids to camp. I had thought it was going to be more about selecting a camp type, interviewing the staff, etc. This is strictly the camp doctor talk.

One previous reviewer stated that it talked about your kids potentially having sex at camp which is inaccurate. It actually discusses the fear that your child could be sexually abused by a counselor. The former would be a welcome addition though since it was brought up. If you're a parent in this situation this will be a good read for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but Sweet August 30, 2012

This book handles the most common questions about camp medical issues, especially those children that take medications regularly, but it also brings up issues for those older campers who might be tempted to have sex while at camp. My experience, nervous parents will be nervous parents, but those grounded in good information will feel better after digesting this quick read.
