Summer Camp Physician
Each week during the summer at Southwind, over 300 campers and leaders 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 physicians* and their families stay at camp during the week of service in amazing accommodations at no cost.
School Season Opportunities
We are also in need of medical providers for camps during the school season months at. 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. Services of the physician take the nature of a screening function. The physician assists the other camp medical personnel in deciding the course of action in emergency situations including deciding which patients need to be transferred to the local medical facility.
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 WyldLife 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. The pool, volleyball and basketball courts are always available during free time.
*Must be licensed in the state of Florida (MD, OD, RN, LPN, PA).
