Camp Ojibwa has a fully equipped and operational modern health center. The facility contains two exam rooms and adequate space for campers or staff that need to be isolated for health reasons.

Our medical staff is among the best in the country for summer camp healthcare. It begins with our Medical Director, Dr. George Sachs. A lifelong member of the Camp Ojibwa family, Dr. Sachs is at camp for the entire season overseeing the operation of our Medical Center.

In addition, we also have a team of 3-4 nursing students to assist the campers and staff with injuries, accidents, and ongoing treatments, as well as prescription distribution. This year, our nurses will be headed by Rita Benz, an RN with extensive experience at Camp Ojibwa. 

When it comes to summer camp, the health and well-being of your son is at the top of the list. With Camp Ojibwa, our healthcare staff and facilities are second to none. You can always feel safe that your camper is being cared for and looked after.
