HEALTH AND WELLNESS AT CAMP PONTIAC
As camp owners and physicians, our priority is to maintain the health and safety of our entire camp community to the greatest extent possible. Our highly qualified medical staff is uniquely equipped to recognize, diagnose, and treat medical issues that arise as expeditiously and effectively as possible. This enables your child to enjoy what they love most: their friends, counselors, and activities. “Camp medicine” differs from “real world medicine.” Living in a communal environment creates easier spread of infections and a short window to treat them, which is our expertise.
When campers are far from home, mental health and wellness is just as important as physical wellness. Before camp begins, we speak with the families of our campers to make sure we understand how each camper is doing at home and at school. This valuable information helps our team of physicians, nurses, and counselors create a safe environment for all campers to feel comfortable in.
FOOD AND NUTRITION AT CAMP PONTIAC
It is so important to offer active campers a well-balanced, nutritious, and healthy diet that appeals to their tastes. Our fully nut-free and seed-free culinary services are managed by a highly experienced and well-respected food and beverage company. They ensure that our dining hall, kitchen, Canteen, and Ice Cream Shoppe adhere to strict professional guidelines in food handling, preparation, and service. Partnering with our in-house nutritionist along with a designated gluten-free dietary specialist and camp moms, they ensure that all campers have plenty of options. We accommodate the entire camp together at the same time, serving family-style with vegetarian and gluten-free alternatives.
SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS
With the ever-changing world of food allergens and sensitivities, Camp Pontiac accommodates the most discriminating eaters. As a pioneer in creating a nut-free and seed-free summer camp environment, we are proud to have been recognized by Town & Country Magazine as one of the top camps in America to deal with medical necessities, dietary restrictions, food allergies, and other medical issues.
