Camp Lohikan’s health center is staffed with 5-6 registered nurses and a Health Service Manager. The health center includes an examination room, male and female dorm rooms, and living quarters for all of our medical staff. The health center is insulated, heated and air conditioned for the comfort of our campers. Emergency ambulance service is located less than 4 miles from the camp and we are within 30 minutes of the Wayne Memorial Hospital, a 24-hour fully-equipped hospital where a wide variety of specialists are available. We also have a dentist on call during the summer for our campers.
The health center is open 24 hours a day. While sick calls are held after every meal, campers who are ill are treated at the health center 24 hours a day. All medications are stored in the health center. Daily medications are logged into a medical database from which daily medication lists are prepared. Medications are distributed and documented by one of our medical staff members.
Parents are notified by a member of the medical staff if their child has been in the health center overnight, their child has been placed on prescription medicine, or their child has been taken to an out-of-camp doctor, emergency room or hospital. You can rest assured that our nurses will keep you informed regarding the health of your child.
