Nutrition + Wellness
We place a high value on providing nutritious meals and quality medical care. We know that a balanced meal plan and top-notch health care for our campers will mean more energy to have fun day in and day out! Our spacious, newly-renovated Dining Hall is where we gather three times a day to eat and connect as a community. Our Head Chef prepares a great variety of wholesome, kid-friendly meals that appeal to all appetites. Campers are given choices, and counselors are present to encourage and model healthy eating habits. We provide a fresh salad bar at lunch and dinner, filled with vegetables and fruit, and always offer a hot vegetarian alternative at dinner. We are able to accommodate most dietary restrictions and allergies, and provide a peanut-aware environment.
Our Health Center is newly-renovated, air-conditioned, and staffed 24 hours a day. Our nurturing medical staff is comprised of a physician and team of nurses with a focus on providing the best care to all campers visiting the health center. Should the need arise, Pocono Springs is only two miles from a local urgent care center and seven miles to Pocono Medical Center Hospital.
We use a third party company to pre-package medications for campers who take prescription medication during their stay at camp. This method is the safest and most efficient way for our health center to administer medications. All medications, both prescription and non-prescription are stored in the health center, keeping camper cabins safe for everyone.
