The weekly Camp Nurse plays a critical role in the safety and success of the summer camp program


Chestnut Ridge’s summer camp program wouldn’t be complete without our wonderful volunteer nurses. Each year, we seek out licensed registered nurses (or doctors and nurse practitioners) who are willing to volunteer as the Camp Nurse for a one week period.

We Provide:

  • Food and Lodging​

  • Camp Scholarships for up to 2 of your children, excluding premium camps. For premium camps you are responsible for paying the premium price difference.

  • Communicating with the camp physician when needed

  • Receiving and checking health forms at registration, collecting medicines from campers, reporting special dietary needs to the kitchen staff, and informing other staff of any special medical needs of campers in their care

  • Examining campers and staff with health related complaints, treating complaints according to the camp physician’s standing orders, and administering first aid

  • Communicating with camp staff, notifying them of any potentially unhealthy or hazardous situation and communicating with parents as needed

  • Logging every visit to the health center, processing insurance claims forms and accident reports
