If you are allergic to stinging insects, then stings from insects such as wasps and hornets can cause a life-threatening condition called anaphylaxis. If you have an allergy to stinging insects and have been given injectable adrenaline (such as Epi-Pen™) be sure to carry it with you at all times. An adult (such as camp personnel) should be trained to give you an injection if you need it.
