Our compassionate and competent nurses are on site and on call 24/7.
They distribute medications and work closely with local physicians to assure proper care for the campers. Camp Hope is located 8 miles from Putnam Hospital Center. A physicians exam, doctor's orders, health history and immunization record are required of each camper and staff member prior to camp. Each staff member undergoes a screening, interview, and background check.
All staff complete special training in understanding disabilities, transfers, hygiene, skin care, and emergency procedures. The New York State Department of Health inspects Camp Hope twice each summer. To see past inspection reports or a copy of our safety plans, please contact the Putnam County Department of Health, 4 Geneva Rd. Brewster, NY 10509.
