Job Description

Aurora Day Camp - Nurse Position

Aurora Day Camp is a free day camp for children ages 3 ½  - 16.  We are the only dedicated full summer day camp in the world for children with cancer and their siblings. It is a camp designed to meet the emotional, social, recreational and physical needs of these children while allowing them to enjoy the comforts and safety of their own homes at night.

There are sleepaway camps that provide a great experience during the summer months, but Aurora Day Camp offers benefits that a resident camp cannot. Aurora Day Camp will provide a true camping experience while the children remain within their own familiar surroundings and continue to receive treatment at their home hospitals.

Aurora Day Camp offers a day camp from June 10 – July 18 plus year- round programs. These additional programs take place at our campgrounds and other locations that provide exclusive use of their facilities. Additionally, our in-hospital program Aurora On Wheels allows children to experience “camp” in the hospital by providing activities for those who are awaiting treatment.

Best of all, Aurora Day Camp is offered free of charge to all children being treated for cancer and their siblings on a non-sectarian basis. By raising the needed funds from outside sources instead of charging the parents, we can help to alleviate some of the costs, and the related stress, that parents incur caring for a sick child throughout the year. Children who have received medical clearance from their physicians are welcome to attend.  Though several weeks of camp programming is offered, children may register and attend any and every day they feel well enough to do so.

Nurse Position

Aurora Day Camp is actively hiring qualified RNs and NPs to work as a part of our crucially important medical team at camp. Overseen by our resident Medical Director, with medical protocols in place, Aurora is staffed with two nurses each day. Nurses are scheduled for as many days at Aurora as their availability allows for, and we allow for very flexible weekly commitments, although consistent day(s) are preferable.  

Nurses get paid $200 per shift and there are two shifts available each day. The morning shift is from 7:30-4pm and the afternoon shift is from 9:30-6pm. Medical care primarily consists of camper triage.

Our nursing team works very closely with our Medical Director, Executive Director, Camp Director, and Wellness Center Coordinator, who is responsible for the administrative aspect of the Aurora medical operation.

Experience in pediatric oncology is a plus but not required, as is any experience having attended or working at camp. We are mainly seeking nurses who enjoy working with children!
