Health, Safety, & Nutrition
- Health & Wellness – Our Health Center is staffed by qualified nurses and volunteer physicians, in a state-of-the-art facility. In addition, we are fortunate to have Waynesboro Hospital emergency room less than ten minutes from camp.
- Mental Health Professionals – Yoetzet (Social workers and allied professionals) ensure the mental health of our campers and staff.
The safety of every child is a sacred trust and the basis for the relationship with our camp families. You trust us with your child and we put that responsibility before all others. With this in mind, we provide the following:
- Security – Comprehensive background checks are performed on all staff and staff wear photo IDs on site.
- Facility Security – We have a monitored electronic gate entrance that limits entry to those we wish to grant access. In addition, we work with local law enforcement agencies to ensure our community remains safe.
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.
