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.

Share your talents 

Each summer, we rely on adult volunteers to help create and lead some fabulous programs at Chestnut Ridge. Some serve as a program instructor, teaching valuable skills to the campers.  Some have a passion for the arts, and share their talents as artists or musicians with the summer campers.  Others prefer to help behind the scenes, working on maintenance projects or helping at the Community Farm.
