Band-Aid Barn

The Doc Joe Camp Rising Sun Band-Aid Barn is staffed 24 hours a day by a pediatric oncologist and a full nursing staff.

Each child is evaluated daily and monitored to make sure he or she takes any prescribed medicine as necessary. Campers are able to take their prescribed medications under proper supervision and can even receive chemotherapy or blood tests right on campus. All camper medications are checked in with the medical staff when campers arrive and are checked out at the end of the week.

The medical staff keep everyone safe and healthy, but they also take an active part in the camp. You’ll find them dressed in blue jeans and bright shirts, joining in games and skits, comforting a child, having a quiet conversation with a camper or urging campers to challenge themselves in a new activity.
