Barretstown has a fully equipped medical facility on site called the Med Shed

The Med Shed

The Barretstown Medical Centre, known as the ‘Med Shed’, overlooks the magnificent Secret Garden at Barretstown, and is situated right beside the Dining Hall.

It is designed to be a sheltering, friendly environment to provide care for minor injuries, general paediatric problems, and administer oral medications including oral chemotherapy, IV push chemotherapy, and factor infusions. Transfusions are not routinely given, nor are multi-agent IV chemotherapy.

The Med Shed includes a full stocked pharmacy, treatment rooms & overnight rooms for campers when needed.

How we work with hospitals
