Health, Safety and Nutrition at Onaway

health-safetyThe health and safety of each child is always a first consideration at Onaway. A resident nurse is in constant attendance. Onaway partners with a local pediatrician's office for same day visits, and Speare Memorial Hospital, nine miles away, is a well equipped, modern hospital with an excellent staff. The camp’s infirmary is comfortable and attractive with a four-bed and single-bed ward, two full baths, kitchen, dispensary, and nurse's quarters. It has a large, sunny porch for rest and is near the main kitchen. Local EMT's are in close range.

Onaway is noted for its good and ample table. The best foods are served, fresh fruits  are always available, and a salad bar comes with every lunch and dinner. Our chef makes an effort to prepare food that appeals to young people and often fulfills requests! Vegetarian, Gluten Free and Dairy free options are available. Families of campers with specific dietary needs should have a conversation with the Director prior to the summer.

Leaving technology at home, the girls are active everyday and developing a heightened appreciation for being outdoors enjoying a variety of physical activities. It is our hope that fresh air and physical activity becomes a lifelong habit and source of enjoyment for them!
