Medical Staff and Dietary Interns

To make camp safe for every camper, we need lots of medical and dietary professionals to help manage the unique needs of our campers. Our medical/dietary staff help make camp possible. We need nurses, CDEs, physicians, and dietitians. All of our medical/dietary staff are subject to a drug screen and background check.


We are looking for hard-working, dedicated role models to serve as counselors for each camp that we offer. Counselors for Little Shots Camp must be 16 years old, for Middle Shots counselors must be 18 years old, and Big Shots counselors must be 21 years old. All counselors are subject to a drug screen and background check.


Our volunteers make things happen! If you have a unique talent to offer or would like to see how you can help out with camp, let us know. If you are a musician, a crafter, or just really organized, we can utilize your skills. We promise you that you will have a great time! All volunteers are subject to a drug screen and background check.
