Camp Sealth recruits health care professionals to serve in a volunteer capacity to provide routine and emergency care for campers and staff. Each week, a different team of 2-3 health professional work together to dispense medications, provide first aid, and manage records in the camp health center. The health care team works under the direction of the Health Care Coordinator, who oversees the health center, and with the guidance and support of a local physician.
To volunteer as a health care staff at Camp Sealth, you must have one of the following current licenses valid in Washington State with no restrictions: MD or DO, NP, PA, RN, LPN, Paramedic, EMT, CNA, MA, or RNA. Provider credentials will be verified. Volunteers must also pass a background and sex offender check.
The volunteer commitment is one week (usually Monday to Saturday); although there are options for shorter-term volunteer work. Contact us if you are interested. In exchange for volunteer service, volunteers may bring up to two kids to camp for free (either day camp or overnight camp).
Note: In 2019, we are looking for one health care volunteer to help with camper check-in every Monday from 6:00 – 8:00 a.m. in downtown Seattle (8-week commitment). We offer tuition exchange for this volunteer opportunity.
