The Open Hearts Camp’s very favorable staff-to-camper ratio reflects our utmost concern for safety. In the unique, tight-knit environment of the Open Hearts Camp, it is essential to staff our program with exceptional individuals. The delivery of the multi-dimensional program, as well as the establishment of a safe, comforting, and supportive atmosphere hinges on the efforts of a well-trained summer counselor staff who are college-age or older. These mature and devoted staff members are selected by our year-round executive director with 16 years of experience at M.O.H.C.
A full-time Registered Nurse is on-site at all times, dispenses all medications, and is available to provide any necessary medical care for campers 24 hours a day. In recent years, we have been fortunate to recruit talented Nurses from hospitals and schools in our region and beyond, all of whom are well versed in pediatric care. Our Nurse’s take great care to thoroughly review each camper’s medical file in preparation for each session, allowing for a very clear understanding of current medical history and needs.
