CAMP Challenge: Not in My Mouth – Medication Safety

Welcome to Week 4 of our COCA CAMP Challenge! This week’s topic is Not in My Mouth: Medication Safety.

Nurturing good decision making skills is a key component of teaching medication safety. By engaging in activities that foster decision-making, children learn to weigh options and make responsible choices–an invaluable life skill that can keep them safe through adolescence and beyond. Equally important is insuring that medicines are stored securely and that children understand medication safety basics.

This week’s CAMP Challenge offers activities and resources that teach medication safety and encourage children to practice making good decisions. Click here to download a printable version of this week’s handout.
