Our Health Challenge & Siblings Camps are magical places where campers take part in fun activities including Sports and Games, Drama, Arts and Crafts and Discovery. Campers will be divided into teams based on their age groups of 8-10, 11-13, 13-15 and 15-17 years of age. Participate in daily camper life to provide nursing/medical care. Facilitate a medically sound and safe camp experience for children with chronic and life threatening illnesses by contributing to a 24/7 provision of residential medical care. Clinical volunteers will work under the supervision of the Director of Nursing and Nursing Coordinators. You will also be part of a team of other incredible volunteers and will need a sense of fun with an energetic, enthusiastic and positive approach. If you are looking for an amazing and rewarding experience where you can make a difference in young people’s lives and see these young people out of a hospital setting, the sign up to be a clinical volunteer today! Camp is four days long (10th-14th July 2023) and you will be required to arrive one day early for training. We will give you all the necessary training and support and provide your accommodation and food for the duration of camp
