Camp Pontiac prides itself as the gold standard for providing summer camp medical care. Ricky and Kenny as physicians, in addition to Pontiac's full-time Medical Director, afford a level of medical expertise we believe is unparalleled in the camping industry. We have two ultra-modern air conditioned medical facilities that include separate pharmacies, asthma treatment rooms, triage sections and sophisticated amenities for outpatient and inpatient medical care. The Boys Health Center was renovated and remodeled in 2016 and the Girls Heath Center was constructed in 2017. Strict protocols such as Epi-Pen and defibrillator use as well as all aspects of medicine are managed by our extensive and highly experienced staff that includes three to four on-site physicians at a time and 12 to 14 registered nurses. Most of our physicians are pediatric emergency room, family care doctors and pediatricians. Camp easily and quickly can access three area hospitals and local specialists as well as EMS located only three minutes from camp. Even with Pontiac's unmatched care, we have long been and will remain a total nut-free camp. We strive to be 100% compliant in all food services within the dining room, canteen, ice cream parlor, snack areas, out of camp trips, intercamps and tournaments regarding our food allergic campers (especially peanut and nut allergies). We also have alternate foods enabling us to handle gluten and lactose intolerance. Multiple food allergies are supervised by two camp moms in conjunction with a nutritionist and our medical staff.
