Taking Care

The health and safety of Kawanhee’s campers is our paramount concern.  We have a full time Maine-licensed RN on staff and available at all times, as well as an arrangement with a local pediatric practice when a doctor’s services are necessary. Kawanhee has an infirmary where the camp nurse resides and where there are beds available for boys who are ill or needing some rest. Every staff member at Kawanhee is trained in first aid and CPR and in specific activities, (wilderness living, trips and waterfront, for example), further training is required.  Kawanhee offers these trainings each summer during the week prior to the start of camp.  Our accreditation requires that we meet certain safety standards and Kawanhee staff exceeds or meets these standards in their training.
