Camp Timberlane is accredited by the Ontario Camping Association (OCA). Camp membership in the OCA is not automatic. There is a two-year provisional period, during which time OCA representatives visit the camp annually ensuring compliance with all standards. Once a camp achieves full membership, OCA representative visit every four years. Timberlane voluntarily adheres to more than 400 separate operational standards covering health and safety, leadership, food service and maintenance, staffing, programming and administration.
Our infirmary operates as a primary care clinic for the camp. Our medical team (including one full-time physician and four full-time nurses) has access to every camper’s health record and is trained and equipped to deal with any health issue.
The infirmary is fully stocked with medical supplies to aid with everything from minor abrasions to more serious conditions. We also have a defibrillator on site.
If our medical staff feels that a camper needs treatment that we are unable to provide, we have excellent medical facilities just 12 minutes away in Haliburton. All of our Doctors have special privileges at Haliburton Hospital to eliminate wait time in case of emergency. We also have a local dentist available if necessary.
Last summer brought a new set of challenges that our team had carefully planned for. Our team worked tirelessly to provide our campers and staff the ultimate care each and every day. Returning this summer, we are pleased to have Dr. Deena Savlov, Dr. Jill Solomon, Dr. Darren Merker, Dr. Jesse Wolfstadt, Dr. Justine Cohen Silver, Dr. Trevor Glazman and Dr. Neil Orzech. Dr. Kenny Melvin will be returning as our chief medical advisor.
