ALA has 24/7 on-campus health staff, including a nurse during regular working hours. Staff manage basic health concerns and can administer certain Over The Counter (OTC) medicines. Additionally, there are many facilitators during each camp session who are First Aid trained and certified.
All other situations are referred to the closest hospital or urgent care facility. In most cases, this is Life Wilgeheuwel Hospital located only seven minutes from the ALA campus. Emergency transport is handled by a contracted emergency medical service. A counselor is also on call to assist if needed.
