Health Care Volunteer

Health Care professionals such as Doctors, Residents, Medical students, Nurses, Nursing students, and Respiratory Therapists are needed for most of the CAMP programs to assist in meeting the medical needs of our campers and staff. CAMP’s health care volunteer opportunities allow health care professionals a chance to get a more in-depth understanding of the day-to-day challenges, accomplishments, and care needs that our campers and their families face.

Professional volunteers such as Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, Case managers, Teachers, Psychologists, Social Workers, and others assist counselors in providing the routine care needs of the campers and assisting with activities.

Without our volunteers, many of these families would not have this opportunity for guilt-free time off from their often overwhelming parenting responsibilities, with the assurance that their children are in a safe and medically appropriate environment.

Healthcare Continuing Education

Developmental Disabilities Reality Course (DDRC): Updates and current trends in providing care for individuals with developmental disabilities.

CAMP’s Developmental Disability Reality Course (DDRC) provides Health Care Professionals the opportunity to earn continuing education credits while they are volunteering at CAMP throughout the summer. The DDRC course is designed to increase the knowledge and understanding of caring for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Health Care Volunteers attend morning lectures pertaining to the developmental disabilities and medical conditions of the campers present at that session and then join their tribe for afternoon and evening activities for “hands on” training.

For more information about volunteer opportunities, please email Sarah Coulombe at sarah.coulombe@campcamp.org.
