Camp to Belong Medical Volunteer
2 people are interested
Are you an experienced healthcare professional, looking to make a difference in the lives of siblings separated by foster care, while spending a week in beautiful Maine?
Sibling Connections ( www.siblingconnections.org ) is a Boston-based organization that works year-round to connect brothers and sisters who have been separated by foster care by hosting monthly Sibling Sunday events (Boston, Springfield, and Lowell), Sibling Weekend Retreats, and a week of Camp to Belong (CTB) in Smithfield, ME in August.
We are searching for a volunteer medical staff (nurse or doctor) to attend our 15th summer of Camp to Belong! We invite 100+ siblings aged 6-20 to attend a week of both traditional summer camp activities and specialized sibling repair activities. Volunteers arrive for a mandatory two-day training on Friday, August 9th. Our siblings arrive on Sunday, August 11th, and we all depart on Friday, August 16th.
CTB Massachusetts’ medical volunteers’ duties will include: camper intake (mainly lice checks and treatments as needed), medication administration, triage and basic first aid, one or two nights as the "on-call" staff member, and of course, to respond to any medical emergencies that arise.
You will be volunteering with two experienced healthcare professionals who have been with CTB-MA for a number of years and can answer any questions you may have! During the week at camp, you will be reporting to the head nurse, but working mostly as a cohesive team.
There will also be break time for the volunteer to enjoy camp activities (ie waterslides, ropes course, boating, arts and crafts, etc.), get to know the campers, or have personal time (exercise, nap, etc) - we want this volunteer experience to be a balance between work and play!
We look forward to working with you.
