There are 300+ student-driven clubs, athletic and performing arts programs offered to students throughout all HSE Schools.During the school year, we offer a variety of opportunities that revolve around many interests; academic teams, hobbies, athletics and performing arts.
Teams of students enhance their research and study skills by delving into topics which change annually, taking them beyond what is usually covered in the classroom. There is one Hamilton County Academic Bowl competition. Subject area rounds include English, math, science, social studies, etc. For more information, please contact Jenny Slota, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nurse Notes for Camp T
• Prescription medication may be given to your student during camp. Please follow the instructions for medication administration:
o Medication(s) must be in the original prescription bottle with ONLY the amount needed during the student’s time at camp. Do not provide extra doses. Most pharmacies will provide an extra bottle with the prescription label upon request.
o Medications can be dropped off to the school during a designated time only, which is Thursday, October 5th from 4:00 – 7:00pm, Fall Creek Junior High, Door 1. This allows the nurses optimal time to organize and gather all supplies needed for camp. Medications will NOT be accepted before scheduled drop off times.
o Some non-prescription meds are allowed, but only for seasonal allergies (ex. Claritin, Zyrtec) or for lactose intolerance (ex. Lactaid). Melatonin or herbals are not allowed.
• Parents attending camp with their student do not need to bring meds to nurse and may give your child their necessary medications while at camp.
• Medications will be dispensed at breakfast, lunch, dinner and before bedtime ONLY. MEDICATIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE KEPT WITH STUDENTS.
• Students may carry their own inhalers and Epi pens provided their name is on the medication and have a doctor’s note to carry
• If your student has an Epi Pen or inhaler in the clinic at school, the nurse will bring them to camp. If they come home with your student, please be sure to return it to the clinic after camp.
• If your child is sick (i.e., Covid, influenza, pneumonia, asthma flare ups, etc.), please do not send your child to camp.
• If your child has sustained concussion, please do not send your child to camp unless cleared by doctor.
• While your child is at camp, please answer any calls from the 765-area code. It may be the nurse calling about your child! Also, please take your phone off blocking mode at night. The nurse may call to request that you need to come pick up your student.
• Parents of Diabetic students – please make every effort to attend camp for your child’s overall care. Due to the high activity of the daily schedule and family style meals, students tend to run low and parental dosing/treatment is preferred if adjustments need to be made. Be sure your student always has supplies with them (fast-acting carbs and glucagon) for low blood glucose. You may also consider contacting your doctor for any changes to accommodate for higher-than-normal activity levels.
• Please remember to pack a lunch in a disposable container for your child for day one. Any lunch meds may be packed with your student’s lunch. The nurse will not be passing meds on Monday lunch or Wednesday lunch.
• The Camp T daily schedule is rigorous, and activity packed from sunup to sundown. If your student has a limitation (crutches, arm sling, etc.) you may want to consider the difficulties your student might experience and opt out of attending camp.
• Cabin parents – DO NOT bring snacks/treats for your kids at night. You may have students in your cabin with allergies/sensitivities. In addition, Camp T staff do not want to attract unwanted critters to the cabins! You MAY bring bottled water with the flavored packs to give your kiddos a treat. (Please – no ‘red’ colored packets due to allergies)
• Parents or students with allergies or dietary restrictions should visit Camp T’s website to fill out the online form.
