Camp Nurse more than "Just a Nurse"

Camp Nurses have several duties around camp.  On Monday mornings they check in all the campers while collecting all the campers' medications.  Throughout the week camp nurses dispense all medications and  treat any incidental injuries that may occur at camp.  Along with that: talking with homesick campers, providing a cool drink of water and being present at camp activities keep the camp nurse pretty busy throughout the day. 

The camp nurse can be a male or female adult meeting the state and camp requirements for being a camp nurse at Trail Ridge Camp.
