Each of our camp programs has their own health center, which is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by a certified nurse or EMT. Our Health Director, a registered nurse with many years of camp experience, provides on-site supervision to our health staff between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM, and on an as needed basis at night. Numerous members of the staff at each of our three camps are certified in CPR for the Professional Rescuer and Advanced First Aid.
The health center at Greenkill is designed to provide a warm, nurturing environment for campers, whether they are paying a quick visit to get a band-aid or staying overnight due to a contagious illness. Our health staff manages camper medical records with care and expertise, administer over the counter and prescription medication according to physician- and parent-approved plans, and offer on-site care for all minor injuries and illnesses.
Our athletic programs–gymnastics, volleyball, soccer and judo–are also staffed by a full time, certified athletic trainer.
In the rare situation when an injury or illness exceeds the scope of care possible on-site, campers are transported to either our local urgent care facility or the emergency room. Parents are notified as soon as possible about any significant medical issues involving their children and are encouraged to contact our nurses directly with any questions or concerns regarding their child’s care while at camp.Our spacious, onsite Medical Center provides campers with access to around-the-clock medical care. Our medical staff includes a licensed athletic trainer to ensure participants receive proper, effective support.
