Location and Job Title:

Camp Nurse
JCC Maccabi Sports Camp
3198 Fulton Ave
San Francisco, CA 94118

Principal Responsibilities:

The Camp Nurse is the lead medical professional on the camp staff, responsible for managing the Health Center and handling any and all medical related situations that arise. The most common ailments and injuries include: allergies, colds, coughs, sore throats, stomach pains, sprains, strains, muscle soreness, bruises, cuts, cramps, and fractures. Campers or staff members with serious ailments/injuries are transported to the local urgent care facility or hospital by camp staff.

There may be certain times of day when the caseload is light and at other times it may be very busy. Camp Nurses are responsible for distribution of approved prescription and over-the-counter medications to our campers, which require that a nurse be in the Health Center during certain times of day (before breakfast, lunch, dinner, and at bed times.) Being a Camp Nurse is not a summer vacation, and you should apply only if you are prepared to work hard and be immersed in a summer camp environment.

The Medical Team, which include a Camp Nurse and an Athletic Trainer, is very much a part of the overall staff and is encouraged to become part of our community, including having a presence during day & evening programming, eating meals in the dining hall, and building relationships with the campers and staff.

If you have sports-minded children of appropriate camp age (entering grades 4-11), they would be welcome to join camp as campers.

This is a seasonal, temporary position and preference will be given to applicants who commit to the full camp season, June 5 - July 31, 2017. There may be, however, an option to work one or two 2-week sessions. Competitive salary is based on experience. It is preferred that Camp Nurses live on campus for the duration of their contract, in which case room and board will be included.
