About Camp Ojibwa

Medical Info

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, in large part thanks to 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 have a team of 3-4 RNs, and nursing students who assist the campers and staff with injuries, accidents, and ongoing treatments, as well as prescription distribution.

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