Have no fear, the best nurses are here!
It’s round-the-clock care at Skylemar, thanks to our “dream team”: Julie, Jess, Kayla, Jackie and Jan. With this amazing lineup, we feel safe, strong and well cared-for.
There are a hundred and one things that come up in a day, and there’s never a dull moment. The Infirmary’s door is entered routinely, with a scratch or a bruise, an ache or a pain. Sometimes a visitor just needs a hug or a little encouragement.
The nurses are there, whenever you need them. Apparently, they have super-human strength when it comes to not sleeping. From before the sun rises to well into darkness, they help us whenever, wherever we are.
From 10-4, it’s Sunscreen & Water Patrol. They ride their “water wagon” golf cart right up to each game, and the coaches know that it’s time to pause for a drink and a sunscreen app. Plus, all in a day are camper health checks, trips to the doc, meds to dispense and a parent to call.
Sports-related bumps and twists are simply “routine”, and ice packs are always at the ready. Things come up unexpectedly at camp as they do at home, and our nurses have a “solve the problem” attitude. Whether a virus or the flu, they WILL come up with a plan.
One time this summer they were caught relaxing. Just once. For 5 minutes. Then never again.
The nurses say that the thank you’s and smiles are more than enough, but this Blog adds a shout-out that’s as big as they come. We love you forever, our "Fab Five"...to the Sky and back!
