Medical Volunteers work alongside our Medical Staff to provide routine and acute care to our campers. We need licensed physicians, nurses, and nurse practitioners, both specialists and general medicine practitioners who can share their medical/clinical expertise with us to create a safe and fun environment. Pediatric experience is preferred. We guarantee this will be a life-changing experience, just as it is for the children who attend Camp.


Housekeeping volunteers work with our full-time staff, assisting them with laundry, tidying-up the cabins and program areas, and changing linens on camper beds between sessions.
