Staff & Medical

Adult Retreats

Camp wouldn’t be possible without medical supervision. It’s a necessity and an advantage of all of our programs. Medical staff is available at each of our adult retreats and will meet with participants on arrival day as needed. Registered nurses are on site during adult retreats to facilitate medical care as needed.

Our on-site Health Center is an exceptional facility where the medical team administers treatments and medications, even isolating patients if medically necessary.

While some campers will have been out of treatment for years, others are just beginning. We encourage participants in the midst of treatment to attend. Our medical team is able to administer advanced treatment such as oral chemotherapy, IV antibiotics and blood tests. They are also able to initiate septic workup and obtain lost, forgotten or unanticipated medication. Much of this takes place in our Health Center, which has three private rooms. One room is equipped for protective isolation and negative flow.

Camp is a 20-minute drive to a community hospital and a one-hour drive to a major medical center. For emergencies, we have a helicopter pad.

For adult retreats, we ask that participants be medically independent and notify us of any special needs in advance of attending.

Camp is a place where campers can be themselves and not have to worry about their diagnosis.

Calendar

From the outside looking in summer may seem like our busy season, but Camp Mak-A-Dream works its magic year-round. From special projects in preparation for our major fundraising events to hosting educational workshops at our Gold Creek campus, we stay busy regardless of the temperature outside. It just happens to be summertime that we especially look forward to.
