Health Center (MARP)

At Camp Ramah in the Poconos, our mission statement, “Creating life-long Jewish connections, one happy camper at a time,” extends to camp’s health center, also known as “the marp.” Our camp’s health center’s mission is to provide a safe, healthy camp experience for our entire camp community.

Our doctors, nurses and health center assistants strive to enable campers and staff, alike, to get the most out of their summer camp experience in the best health possible, with minimal disruption from injuries and illness. The camp health center is an integral part of camp, because camp is best enjoyed in an environment of health maintenance, safety, mobility, and wellness.
