Position Description

General Summary

AF Camp is seeking a Nurse to help oversee all aspects of the AF Camp Health Center. Reporting to the Head Nurse and the Director of AF Camp and working closely with the Health Center Team, contracted nurse practitioners and camp doctors, and AF Camp Senior Team, the Nurse is responsible for ensuring the health, wellness and safety of AF Camp campers and team members. We pay a competitive salary and offer many other enticing benefits, such as free room, board, and laundry service. Please do not worry about having in-state credentials; as long as you have a certification in any state, you are eligible to begin work at AF Camp. We will pay for your state certification as soon as you begin at camp. The dates are 6/20/21-7/31/21.

 

AF Camp serves ~500 campers from Achievement First (grades 4-9) over 2 two-week session2 during the summer. At AF Camp, we believe that an overnight summer camp experience:

  1. Provides an opportunity for campers from Achievement First to explore, learn, and have fun in a safe, tight-knit community;
  2. Increases campers’ social, emotional, and non-cognitive skills (e.g., self-confidence, responsibility, independence, and curiosity), which are essential to college and life success;
  3. Provides a tremendous summer job opportunity/experience for AF alumni and rising 12th graders from AF; and
  4. Creates an additional pipeline for strong, diverse teacher candidates for AF by providing a space for counselors (potential teachers) to work directly with AF students.

 

AF Camp offers the following program activities for campers:

  • Athletics: soccer, flag football, basketball, tennis baseball, kickball, street hockey;
  • Waterfront: swim instruction, general swim, sailing, kayaking, canoeing;
  • Adventure: nature, overnight camping, climbing, and low ropes;
  • Inter-Arts: arts & crafts, pottery, theater, dance, music;
  • STEM: rocketry, natural/environmental science;
  • Discovery: self-reflection, journaling, team-building; and
  • Intensives: improvisation, photography, puppeteering, cooking, chess, spoken word, hiking, wacky sports, African dance, step dance, and yoga.

 

Essential Duties and Responsibilities
