Doctors Program

 

Summer Camp Doctor

Each week during the summer at Woodleaf, over 400 high school kids load up and head out for the best week of their lives.

To provide the best possible care, we need physicians to help us meet the medical needs of the campers and summer volunteers at camp.

All camp doctors and their families stay at camp during the week of service at no cost.

School Season Opportunities

We are also in need of medical providers for camps during the school season months at Woodleaf. These camps are shorter (usually over a weekend), quieter, and more relaxing than summer camping. Contact us if you are interested in this opportunity.

What will I do?

The week will be busy - more like a mission trip than a vacation! But we’ll do our best to get you relaxing with your family by the pool. The camp physician’s primary role is to provide timely triage assessment of guests who require medical care for an injury or an illness during their week at camp. They direct the course of action in the event of an emergency and decide which patients need to be transferred to the local clinic or hospital. Woodleaf has an EMT or Paramedic serving each week as well. Along with the doctor, the EMT/Paramedic staffs the camp infirmary for one half hour after each meal to care for minor injuries, colds, sore throats, etc. The physician is on call 24/7 for any emergencies.

The physician must also adequately document the medical record to reflect the care that has been given.

At no time should any physician practice medicine that falls outside of their medical license and level of experience and training.

What about my family?

Your spouse and children, ages 17 and younger, are invited to share the week with you. Whether it’s enjoying meals together, swimming in the pool, or watching Young Life summer camp in action - you are sure to have a great time. Time and space permitting, your family will have an opportunity to experience the many activities around camp.
