Camp Ojibwa has a fully equipped and operational modern health center. The facility contains two exam rooms and adequate space for campers or staff that need to be isolated for health reasons.

The most outstanding feature of our medical staff is that Camp Ojibwa has a season long doctor living at camp, Dr. George Sachs (see bio in Future campers section, About Ojibwa, Directors). Having a full time Director of Medical Services is a great asset as Dr. Sachs assures that our campers and staff receive excellent continuity of care throughout the summer. In addition to Dr. Sachs, camp has weekly visiting doctors and 3 – 4 full summer nurse assistants.
