Job Description

What is Camp Akeela? Camp Akeela is an overnight summer camp in Vermont for boys and girls ages 9 - 17. Many of our campers are Neurodivergent and have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum or ADHD. Others are undiagnosed but are described as "quirky." All are very bright, charming and well-behaved boys and girls who struggle to connect with their peers. Akeela’s small, supportive community helps campers improve their social skills, make friends, gain self-confidence and have fun! Who should apply to Camp Akeela? We are looking for an experienced nurse (RN or NP) to join our outstanding health care team. Our Head Nurse is a Pediatric NP with over a decade of experience!  This will be her 3rd summer at Akeela.   Amy is a wonderful supervisor and care-taker. Our nurses also coordinate with an outstanding local pediatrician who is on-call for us 24/7. The nursing staff is an integral part of the camp community. We work with a company that pre-doses and packages all of our campers' medications, giving our nurses more time to enjoy camp. We encourage them to be out in camp as much as possible, fostering strong relationships with campers and staff. Akeala nurses act as medical advisors, emergency managers, medication distributors, "camp moms", friends, counselors and role models. It's an important and extremely rewarding position. Camp Akeela’s directors Debbie (PsyD in Clinical Psychology, Yeshiva University) and Eric Sasson (MEd, Harvard University), along with a key staff of experienced professionals, are at camp to mentor and support the entire staff.
