Camp RX Program


Dear Camp Families,

Welcome to 79th Street Pharmacy. We are happy to help you with all your child's medication needs for Summer 2020.  At 79th Street Pharmacy, we strive for personal customer service. Please feel free to call (646) 370-5978 or email us pharmacist@79thrx.com with any questions.

All medication will be dispensed and individually packaged in sealed packets labeled with your child's name, medicine, dosage and time to be given.  Our system ensures that each camper receives their correct medicine at the right time of day.  All medications will be sent to camp prior to your child's arrival.

79th Street Pharmacy will dispense all prescriptions taken daily or as needed except injectibles, liquids, inhalers, refrigerated medications.
