Paid Summer Camp Positions
Camp Kesem of UW is in need of camp nurses for their upcoming camps in August.
Camp Kesem is a national non-profit organization run by college students that puts on a free summer camp for kids affected by their parent’s cancer. Our volunteers are all students at the University of Washington, and they fund raise and plan all year to ensure camp runs smoothly. All camp kids have a parent who has, has had, or has passed away from cancer. Our camp aims to provide them a space to truly be a kid, because their lives don’t often allow time for being a child. We are looking for one nurse for our first week of camp, August 13th-18th and two nurses during our second week of camp, August 20th – 25th, 2017. If you love children and would like to spend some of your summer to meet these inspirational kids, please contact us. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

We offer a competitive salary, travel expenses, housing, meals and laundry service. If you have boys under the age of 16, we welcome them as campers, with all expenses covered. There is also a reciprocal arrangement with a nearby girl’s camp, for the daughters of our staff members.
We would be pleased to tell you more about the job, and my wife Arleen can be reached during the day or evening at (410) 329-3775, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out our website at: www.campskylemar.com.
Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth
The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth is hiring nurses for our summer academic program at the University of Seattle.
A summer at CTY has more books than bug bites and more algebra than archery. Our students—rising 8th-11th graders—participate in engaging classes and social activities. They come for love of learning and the chance to study on a beautiful college campus. They have the time of their lives with our energetic staff and their new best friends. Our staff retention rate is robust. We offer competitive pay plus room and board on campus.
CTY site nurses, like camp and school nurses, have clinical and administrative responsibilities. Site nurses review student medical information, dispense medications students bring with them to site, confer with parents, assess and treat student illnesses and injuries, and document student health care and make referrals as needed. They are supported in this work by health assistants.
Employment dates are June 18 to August 6. Salary ranges from $7,000 to $8,200, depending upon license and experience. Our residential sites provide housing and meals in addition to salary. Residency strongly preferred.
