Job Requirements

Camp is required to provide 2 fte nurses 24/7. We typically hire 2 full time nurses to provide the bulk of these hours but work with 10-12 local nurses to provide days off and night duty whenever the full time nurses cannot. Provide health care to 10-14 year old campers (4 weeks of Boys & 4 weeks of girls) along with camp staff and some outside school groups. Some Nurses in the past have elected to work for just the 4 weeks of Boys camp or Girls camp but we prefer the whole summer if possible.
