ANCHOR LEAD: School's out and camp's in session. For many kids, this will be the first time they're away from home for an extended period of time, so parents want to make sure they stay healthy and safe. Bobbi Owens has more. (:60) SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Bobbi Owens. Every summer, camp counselors become surrogate parents to about 10-million kids around the country. So it's important to give them as much information as possible about your child before you send them packing. Vicki Greenberg is a Family Nurse Practitioner and Nursing Program manager at University of Phoenix's College of Nursing. Vicki, what should parents tell camp staff about their child? CUT: (Greenberg) Make a list of any allergies they have to food, to bees. Any medications that your child is on. Note any illnesses that your child may have had recently, any injuries. And any medical conditions that your child has are very important for the camp staff to know as well. SCRIPT: What else can parents do to help make their child's camp experience a great one? CUT: (Greenberg) Actually one of the most important things is send your child to a camp that the child wants to go to. If the child doesn't like sports, don't send him to a sports camp.
