We’re so glad you’re thinking about joining our camp staff team. At Camp Tannadoonah we take very seriously the privilege and immense responsibility of taking care of other peoples’ children. And of taking care of those children themselves — our campers are our greatest joy and this job is ALL ABOUT THEM — the campers!
The health officers must be a licensed physician, RN, PA, nurse practitioner, LPN, EMT, or medical first responder. Most of our health officers spend one session at camp (usually one week long). The camp health officers are responsible for overseeing check in on Sunday afternoons, reviewing health forms with parents, documenting any changes, collecting and organizing any medications, and briefing the camp staff on any special needs of the campers. During the week, the health officers treat any injuries or illnesses that occur, and distribute and document all medications.
In addition, our health officers are in charge of the Golden Broom, which is awarded to the cleanest cabin each week. The health officer evaluates each cabin once (or more!) each day, and gives them a score for their cabin cleanliness, as well as a score for their camp cleanup job that day. The health officer is responsible for communicating any camper and staff concerns to the Camp Director, and for contacting parents in the event of a camper illness or injury.
If you think you have what it takes to give of yourself in the pursuit of helping to nurture, inspire, and educate young campers, and to model the highest level of ethical, responsible, focused, and uplifting behavior, then camp counseling might be a perfect fit for you.
Young people want to shape the world.
Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice, and discover who they are.
In Camp Fire, it begins now.
