Summer Camp Medical Team

Each week during the summer at RockRidge Canyon, more than 300 high school kids load up and head to the mountains of British Columbia for the best week of their lives.

To provide the best possible care, we recruit Doctors to provide emergency and general medical practice care to help us meet the medical needs of the campers and summer volunteers at camp. Each week two Doctors share care, so you and your family can enjoy camp too.

What will I do?

Office hours are set for 30 minutes following each meal. As part of the medical team, you are asked to wear a radio and be on call throughout the week in case of an emergency.

Our camp clinic (‘Club Med’) is set up like a family practice treatment centre. Support services available include Princeton General Hospital, BC Ambulance Service, and 2 local pharmacies for prescriptions.

The physician also documents the care that has been given in the infirmary log.

At no time should any physician practice medicine that falls outside of his or her medical license, level of experience or training.

What about my family?

Your spouse and dependant children, are invited to share the week with you. We recommend that teenaged children be registered as campers. 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.

All camp doctors and their families stay for no charge during their week of service at camp.

I saw a group of staff and teens enjoying life to the absolute fullest. The clinic was impressively stocked and staff were extremely supportive. It was an honour to be part of such a journey.
