The health and safety of our entire camp family is our number one priority. The Health Center at Camp Wayne is staffed by a doctor, registered nurses and a Health Center Administrator 24 hours a day. This medical team oversees the care of campers and staff throughout the summer, including those with special medical needs, allergies, and those taking medication. In addition to two examination rooms, the Health Center has rooms for campers who need to spend the night or just relax for few hours until they’re ready to get back into activities. Camper rooms are air-conditioned and have TVs and games to provide a comfortable place to recuperate.
If a camper needs to stay in the Health Center overnight or needs to receive care from a specialist outside of camp, the health staff will always consult with his parents. We understand that children away from home with a health issue often need an extra dose of “TLC”. Our nurses know that working in a summer camp requires them to be sensitive to the needs of children. It is essential that our nurses have not only the credentials to be a skilled RN but have the right temperament to work with children as well.
We are a short distance from two health clinics in our local area and major hospitals in Honesdale, PA and Binghamton, NY. Local ambulance/EMT services are also available.
