Summer Camp Nursing Staff

Contact Judy Swanson - 515-547-2751

Hidden Acres is blessed to have nurses and other medical personnel who volunteer their time each summer to serve in our Medical Station during summer camp.  Each week we like to have at least 4 nurses/medical personnel on duty.  We ask our volunteers to be here around 1 p.m. on Sundays to get settled in and be ready to help with check-in.  Volunteers are usually finished up and ready to head home by 5p.m. on Friday.  During the week, you will help dispense medications, bandage knees, pull out splinters, etc.  You will also be asked to be on call 1 or 2 nights during the week.  Our volunteers usually stay in our Inn or in the Welcome Center.  If you have children attending camp, we would be glad to scholarship them in exchange for your service.  Also, if your spouse and other children want to accompany you, we are glad to have them.  Of course, your lodging and meals are free.  We do require you to submit a copy of your current nursing license or other certification.  Below are the dates we need nurses for the upcoming summer. The entire summer camp schedule is posted to our website each year by November 1st. Please call Judy if you have questions or would like to volunteer.

Weekend Nurses

We are looking for nurses/medical personnel to volunteer on the weekends during our summer camp when we have T3 and AW campers on grounds.  You must be qualified to dispense medications from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. You do not need to be in the Medical Station all the time, but mainly just during med pass times of 8 a.m., 12 p.m., 5 p.m., and 9 p.m.  Also, we would ask that you leave your cell phone number on the board so you could be reached in an emergency. As with our weekly nurses, your family is welcome to join you.  On some weekends, meals would be provided if we are cooking for retreat guests.  However, some weekends you would need to provide your own food.  This really is a great time to come enjoy our camp.  Please call me if you have questions or would like to volunteer.
