Job Description

We are seeking Registered Nurses for our 7 week summer camp, who are hard-working, confident, responsible, friendly and a team player. Camp Nurses work in our recently constructed air conditioned Medical Center that is staffed 7 days a week.

Chipinaw / Silver Lake is located in the beautiful Catskill Mountains of New York State under 2 hours from NYC.

Camp nursing is a combination of first aid, school nursing, and sometimes mom nursing all rolled into one. Your responsibilities include first aid for minor injuries, ensuring the health and safety of campers and staff, daily sick call, communicating specific camper health needs, communicating with the medical director & camp director. You will have the opportunity to participate in camp activities and events…..and have fun..

Camp nursing is a rewarding experience but by no means a walk in the park. You need to be prepared for some hard work. The team consists of 6 – 7 RN’s, Doctor, Medical Director and 3 Nurse Administrators. The Nurse administrators will take charge of calling in prescriptions, scheduling specialist appointment and hospital runs. This will allow you to focus on what you do best, caring for sick and injured campers and staff.

You will receive a competitive salary for the camping season June 25th – August 13th. You will be required to arrive a few days prior to undergo orientation. Along with a great salary you will have your own room that will be air-conditioned along with a private bathroom.

If you have camp age children (7-15 years old) we would like to offer them a spot at camp tuition free provided we have space in their age group.
