    What’s New in Health and Wellness at Camp?

    Camp Wenonah Health ServicesThe Wenonah Health Services team is looking forward to another terrific Summer Camp season!

    Wenonah is fortunate to have a team of experienced nurses on site 24 hours a day throughout the Summer season. Our nurses meet with all campers on the first day of Camp, and are available to campers, POLARIS, and WCITs throughout their stay at Wenonah.

    The Health Services team includes: Sue Berlinguette (Period 1A), Mary Sutherland (Period 1B), and Joanna Walenius (Period 1); Gwen Neizer & Nancy Vandenbergh (Period 2); Louise Pope-Rhoden & Franziska Hines (Period 3); Carol Blair-Murdoch (Period 4), Jane Lowes-Ciordas (Period 4A), and Nancy Vandenbergh (Period 4B); Lisa Baker & Doreen Sauve (Period 5); and Erica Childs (WEEnonah).

    Dr. Phyllis McCord (Camp Doctor) and Nancy Vandenbergh (Associate Director, Health & Wellness) provide leadership to our Health Services group as part of the Wenonah Management Team.

    We are providing most over-the-counter medications!

    Medications such as Tylenol, Acetominophen, Ibruprofen, Advil, Benadryl, Gravol, Claritin and Vitamin C are now being supplied by Camp. These medications are stocked in the Health Centre, and are available through our nurses if your child needs them regularly or periodically during their time at Wenonah.

    If your camper uses these medications, please make a note on their Health Information Form so that your child’s Counsellor knows to bring your camper to the Health Centre when they need them. We hope this saves you time and money…we’ve got all regular over-the-counter medications covered!

    Please remember, if your child has prescription medications these need to be brought to Camp in their original containers, with dispensing information clearly marked in English. Please make sure to send a note to Camp with any additional information (e.g. your child likes to take with juice, etc.) so the nurses are clear about how to dispense them correctly and safely.

    Medication administration times at Camp are scheduled after breakfast, after lunch, after dinner and before bedtime. If your child needs to take their prescribed medications at times other than these, please send a note alerting us to this.

    New Medication Drop Off Process!

    If your child is taking the Camp bus from Vaughan Mills Mall, we are asking that you give all of your child’s medications (and written instructions) to a Camp staff member before your camper boards the bus. The staff member will ensure the medications get delivered to the nurses safely upon arrival at Camp.

    When your child returns home, please remember to pick up your child’s medications from the Camp staff member present at Vaughan Mills.

    If you are dropping your child off at Camp by car, please visit the Health Centre to drop your child’s medications off (and meet the nurses and Health Centre staff!), or hand them to a Camp staff member at the office.

    We want to work with you to ensure all medications arrive safely at Camp, and are brought to the Health Centre in timely manner upon your child’s arrival at Wenonah.

     * * * * *

    If you have any questions about health care at Wenonah, please email Nancy Vandenbergh (nancy@campwenonah.com). Nancy is happy to answer any questions you may have, and to work with you to ensure a safe and healthy Camp experience for your child.

        WENONAH FOUNDATION CONTRIBUTIONS

        Wenonah offers spots to campers who might not otherwise have a chance to attend Camp. This is made possible through the generous donations made by our families.

        We have a section on our final forms for families to donate unspent General Store funds to the Wenonah Foundation. If your child has $20.00 or less remaining in his or her General Store account, you may select the option to donate this money to the Wenonah Foundation.

        On behalf of all the children and families who benefit from the generosity of Wenonah families each year, thank you for considering this option.

          Join Us for Spring Camp Weekend!

          Spring Camp Weekend 2014After great success over the last two years with our Fall Camp Weekend, we are so exicited to introduce a new Spring Camp Weekend at Wenonah in May for our Summer campers, POLARIS, WCITs, and friends that may be interested in having an introduction to Wenonah.

          2014 WCITs are invited to join us on a complimentary basis (we’ll have several opportunities for our WCITs to assist with program leadership over the weekend).
