The Portsea Camp

Medical Team

The camp’s medical team is responsible for all on-site first aid and administering medication. Whenever possible, the camp seeks to have a Doctor at camp. Doctors and nurses attending camp are welcome to bring family members. Where children are the same age as children attending they are expected to participate in the recreation program.

Doctors and nurses are based in the camp’s medical centre which has a well-equipped first aid room and two bedrooms for sick children.

Doctors and nurses assist the overall running of the camp by ensuring that children use sunblock and providing support to those who are homesick.

Doctors and nurses establish their own roster for after-hours on-call support.

For further information and to discuss applying to attend, please contact the camp’s Operations Manager, Alex Crawford.
