Medical Staff

Our Health Centers function as “first aid” stations and we refer serious illnesses and injuries to our network of local physicians or to the local emergency room. Service will include daily “clinic” times and flexible “on call” hours.  Every Kanakuk Kamp Health Center is staffed with at least two Registered Nurses, a Health Center Helper and an on-site volunteer Physician.

At some of our Kamps we have Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists to ensure quick and accurate diagnosis and therapy to our occasional sport injuries.
