Camp Edward Isaacs has an air-conditioned medical facility
on-site with two full-time nurses and space for ten beds. A doctor
from Long Island Jewish Hospital makes house calls to camp three times
a week and is always on call. The Putnam Community Hospital is only
ten miles from camp, and there are doctors, specialists and dentists available

Campers enjoy 2 swims daily in our Olympic size heated swimming
pool. The first swim of every morning is reserved for instruction. Our
Water Safety Instructor (WSI) swim staff uses the morning swim to teach
our campers how to advance their swim level with the use of the American
Red Cross Learn to Swim program. Each camper earns a certificate and swim
level card from the American Red Cross at the end of their summer stay.
The afternoon swim is equally well supervised and is for fun and games.
Recreation swim is the way to keep cool all summer long. Campers love
splashing around in the deep-end, using the diving board, slide and basketball
hoops. Campers participate in swimming relay races and fun contests all
Phone Calls Home: Each bunk will have a
designated Phone Home Time while at camp. Parents and caregivers
will be informed as to when to expect a call from their child (Ex. Ruth
A will have Phone Home Time on Wednesday from 7-9 P.M. Parents and
caregivers can expect to hear from Lisa sometime between 7 and 9 P.M.)
Phone Calls From Home to Camp: It is our
desire to provide each camper with a fluid, fun, and exciting camp day.
For this reason, we prefer that calls into camp be limited to emergencies
only. Please remember to reserve calls into camp for emergencies
only (remember that the sound of a loved ones voice can stir up some "home
sickness" that might have otherwise not been present).
Cell Phones: In order to best build the
connections between campers and camp staff, campers are not permitted
to have cell phones.
