Target Helps Canadian Families Get Ready for Summer Camp

From everyday essentials to allergy advice, Target pharmacists are there to 
help parents prepare 
MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 19, 2013 /CNW/ - With school almost out for the summer, 
Target pharmacies across Ontario are helping moms plan for a safe and 
enjoyable experience as their kids head off to camp. With a wide range of 
essentials -- from sunscreen and insect repellant to sleeping bags and water 
toys -- Target has everything for camp in one convenient location. Pharmacists 
are on hand to provide expert advice on a variety of camp-related concerns, 
including campers who may have allergies, sensitive skin or medication needs. 
"While bathing suits and sunscreen are often at the top of the camp checklist, 
preparing for allergies, food sensitivities and how to ensure medication is 
taken properly is not always top-of-mind," said Bowen Chen, pharmacy 
franchisee, Target Pharmacy. "Asking the right questions up front and flagging 
any potential medical concerns will ensure parents are confident sending their 
children off to enjoy the beautiful outdoors." 
Target pharmacies have numerous tip sheets and takeaways on allergy management 
for home, camp and school, in addition to information on EpiPen and how it can 
help protect children in the event of a severe reaction. Guests are invited to 
drop by their local Target pharmacy for expert advice and a checklist of 
questions to consider when selecting a camp, as well as tips on how to 
properly prepare children and camp counselors for a safe, fun outdoor 
Target stores are open in 48 locations across Canada including British 
Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario. To find your nearest Target, please
