Dedicated medical professionals play an integral role in making camp happen every summer for hundreds of Campers with disabilites and chronic illnesses.
Care for Every Camper
When you have a child with disabilities, it can be hard not to worry about them. No matter the level of care a Camper needs, we are ready to care for them in every way possible. We have a full medical facility with nurses and doctors who are ready to assist whenever needed.
If you know of a Camper who has care needs and are unsure if Camp Barnabas is the right fit, or if you would like to join us on the Med Team, contact our Health Services Director Bernadette Losh at [email protected].
Med Team Roles
Physicians play a vital role at camp each week by caring for the wide range of medical issues that may arise during camp sessions. Physicians are on call to evaluate Campers, Missionaries, and Staff, supervise medical procedures, prescribe medication, and perform treatments. Otherwise, they join camp activities and have a fun-filled week at camp! Physicians must be licensed to practice in their state.
Healthcare professionals keep our Campers, Missionaries, and Staff well cared for each week at camp by distributing daily medications, providing necessary procedures, and responding to Camper, Missionary, or Staff drop-in visits. Nurses and providers must have an unencumbered, compact state license.
