Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a summer camp for social change. We run life-changing empowerment programs for 12-17 year-olds who want to change the world! Check us out at www.yeacamp.org.
The first rule of YEA Camp is: Don't get hurt! But sometimes campers (and staff) break that rule, and that's where you come in!
Our overnight camp in Mass (including staff training) is held in Charlton, MA: June 28-July 9.
We are also hiring for our NY camp near New Paltz: July 13-24 and in Northern California: August 2-13
If you are only available for more than one session, that's fine. If you can do more than one and are licensed in those states, even better!
A health supervisor can be a physician, nurse, physician's assistant, EMT, Wilderness first responder or be certified in another advanced first aid course.
Our health supervisor is our go-to person we hope we don't need to go to, and also the person who administers all medication, ensuring that all campers and staff get what they need to stay healthy for our week together. The health supervisor is also the person accountable for emergency procedures and injury management.
These duties tend to be light, providing ample time to enjoy an inspiring week in a beautiful setting.
Note that if you are interested in the NY camp, the NY Dept of Health has very, um... particular requirements for camp health supervisors, which include the following first aid and CPR requirements - even for health care practitioners whose training and experience is vastly superior to the required training, though emergency responders probably already qualify for having taken the required courses annually.
First Aid Requirement:
We would be willing to pay for necessary classes if need be.
Stipend: $500 per session, negotiable, including room (in a lovely, relaxing camp setting!) and board (delicious mostly organic vegan food made by our amazing personal camp chef!).
