A Summer at Camp Kweebec

  1. I spent 5 yrs as Camp Nurse here....15 yrs later after reading this story having pangs to return. Finally air conditioned the infirmary. I was lulled to sleep each night by sound of basketballs as court right outside infirmary front door--along with minature golf, Gazebo, and walled hockey rink that my youngest learned to ride bikes inside. His birthday was at camp first 5 years, always had a Pinata in Gazebo. Was so upset that first home party missing pinata, DH ran out to buy one, a tradition that lasted till he was 16. Karen

    I live about 45 minutes north of this camp. Any idea if they hire LPNs? I'm really trying to stay closer to home this year!

    They have primarily used RN's at camp and are looking for 9 week committment. One can submit online applications at most camp websites.
