- Camp Medical Care -
Camp Lohikan’s health center is staffed with a medical doctor and 5 registered nurses. The 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 medical service is located less than 4 miles from the camp and we are within 30 minutes of the Wayne County 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 registered nurses.
Parents are notified by a member of the medical staff if their child has been in the health center over night, 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.
How do you monitor camper hygiene?
Campers are supervised daily for proper grooming and cleanliness by their cabin counselors and their division directors. Campers are required to take a daily shower and brush their teeth twice a day. Periodic wellness assessments are made by the infirmary staff to confirm good health. On sunny days campers are checked for the application of sunscreen. Sunscreen stations are located throughout camp.
How does the camp ensure the safety of campers?
Safety always comes first at Camp Lohikan. Our risk management manuals address the operation of every program and facility where campers could potentially get hurt. These manuals delineate required supervision levels, equipment checks, and operating guidelines to ensure the safe participation of all campers.
Safety procedures are an integral part of every daily activity. Every activity is staffed by instructors with confirmed skills and documented training to safely operate the activity. All activity equipment is the very best available and designed to assure the maximum safety of our campers. Safety procedures for each activity are carefully reviewed with campers prior to participation and all safety procedures are strictly enforced.
Campers and staff are trained to recognize and respond to signals in case of an emergency. Emergency procedures are practiced by way of drills held early in every session. We train our staff in first aid and CPR during the staff orientation period. We also train staff members in the proper use of fire extinguishers (attached to every building). We even have our own fire truck at camp which we also use for staff training!
