ANYONE WORK AT A SUMMER CAMP AS AN RN OR LPN?

  1. If so, where and how much were you paid and how did it work out? What state was it in and could your kids go with you?
    Thanks.

    Iworked as a camp nurse for the past two summers at a boy scout camp. It was very demanding -14 hour days with a huge volume of medications! I requested $800. weekly and I was paid $750. This required my living on site, families are welcome however my own boys are in college. If you have any further questions that are specific, write back. Have a great day.

    Hi Irene. I did summer camp nursing at a United Church of Christ camp in CT a few years ago. It was for a week at a time, it paid $300 or the tuition for a child. I found it to be rewarding but exhausting. That was before I had 2 kids under 18 months!! I don't know what it would be like to do it longer than a week at a time. I found the best helpers were EMTs, they had the first aid skills that I lacked. Good luck. barb

    I was camp nurse at a small Girl Scout camp for a week two summers in a row. I got about $250 for the week and my daughter got to go for free. It was busy before and after meals with medicines and also at bedtime but otherwise I had a lot of free time for the most part. Spent some of this time doing things like swimming, and walking. The biggest drawback was I was the only medical person at camp and therefore on call 24/7 so the anticipation was always there. It was a lot of fun though and I highly recommend it.
