Monday, June 18, 2018 - Camp Champ brings together well-being champions for half-day retreat

About 80 well-being champions and leaders from HealthPartners hospitals and clinics across the St. Croix Valley and western Wisconsin gathered for a team building event.

Camp Champ is the first event of its kind held by the organization. It took place at YMCA Camp St. Croix in Hudson on June 5 and brought together Be Well Champions from departments as diverse as surgery, human resources, environmental services and laboratory. They listened to brief presentations and took part in team exercises on the Initiatives Forest low elements course and group challenge games.

Be Well Champions have the role of inspiring their colleagues across HealthPartners to take small steps to improve their health and wellness.

Ted Wegleitner, executive leader of the five HealthPartners hospitals and clinics in the region, told attendees: “How we help support and improve the health of our communities starts with us.”
