Description of Role

As a Camp Nurse, you'll be reporting to the Medical Coordinator and will be responsible for providing high quality nursing and care to our campers and volunteers. As part of the Health Care Team, Camp Nurses support by providing first aid, administering medications and treatments as required; all while maintaining accurate documentation standards. They will be required to uphold Camp Quality's policies, procedures and guidelines. Camp Nurses will only practice within their scope deemed by the College of Nurses in Manitoba.

Overnight Summer Camp

Our overnight camp programs give kids affected by cancer and rare blood disorders a chance to just be kids! What's unique about Camp Quality? Our campers are matched 1:1 with a volunteer Companion (Camp Counsellor) who is there to support them throughout the week. While we do everything in groups at camp for safety, this 1:1 matching provides both campers and caregivers with a level of assurance that their child is well taken care of. Each campsite is a little bit different, but you can expect many classic camp activities, like swimming, sports and games, arts and crafts and more! Our year-round Camp Organizing Committee volunteers plan the schedule and activities for the week.
