Life savers at YMCA Camp Ockanickon

Life saving AED’s will be placed in the two dining halls at the camp.

YMCA Camp Ockanickon in Medford recently received two Automated External Defibrillators donated by the Virtua Health Foundation and The Heart House, which is a cardiology practice in Southern New Jersey.

The life saving devices will be placed in the two dining halls — one at boys camp Ockanickon and the other at girls camp Matollionequay.
