- May 3 1:31 PMYou share my husband's pain. Summer camp, the way it runs now, is very
structured. There was a reason the scout was put on the meds. Completing
merit badges, doing their part at the campsite (our camp has patrol
cooking), and behaving appropriately seem to go by the wayside with these
boys. It's just plain not acceptable, but needs to be told to the parents,
because many are oblivious.

Aahhh. The old "let's take the required break from ADHD meds while Johnny is
at Summer Camp" trick. Had it happen a couple of times. Never fun,
especially when they don't let the leaders know their boy is ADHD and on
meds in the first place. Johnny goes berserk and no one can figure out why
until they have him packed up and ready to go home early.
