Health & Wellness

Care of our campers is our top priority. As we prepare for summer 2021, we are implementing additional health and wellness procedures in response to COVID-19 pandemic. Please see our COVID-19 playbook for summer 2021.

The Mirpa’ah/health center is staffed by qualified nurses 24 hours-a-day during camp sessions. Camp physicians staff sick-call hours daily and are always on-call.  In addition we are fortunate to have Waynesboro Hospital emergency room less than ten minutes from camp.  Please be certain to complete our medical forms fully, and to list all the medications your child is taking, or any special conditions of health, diet or personal habits that affect your child. The more complete information you provide, the better we can care for your child’s physical and mental health. In addition to our outstanding counselors and village leaders, our Yoetzot (social workers and allied professionals) ensure the mental health of our campers and staff.  Our Yoetzot help train and support our counselors, work directly with campers and are parent liaison collaborating with parents before, during and after the summer.

The camp community gathers in our state of the art Chadar Ochel (dining hall) for 3 meals a day. As a community camp, we are proud to be a Glatt kosher facility under the supervision of the Vaad of Greater Washington. To ensure complete safety and remain all-inclusive, our facility is peanut and tree-nut prohibitive. Other dietary needs can often be accommodated, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, egg free, lactose free and sugar free. We have designated staff in our kitchen whose sole responsibility is to prepare these special menus and ensure children with special dietary needs are treated with care and respect and eat a well balanced menu. To ensure children have enough ‘fuel to burn’ we also serve snacks during the day and at night-time.
