Easterseals Wisconsin has two camp programs located in Wisconsin Dells: Camp Wawbeek and Respite Camp. Both camps run weekend programs during the school year as well as week long sessions during the summer.
We are looking for RNs, LPNs, student nurses and GNs to join us for our summer programs. Nurses set up and administer medications, perform standard first aid, attend camp trips, and perform daily care for campers. We also have great opportunities for student nurses to work directly with our veteran nurses and gain invaluable experiences.
Both Camp Wawbeek and Respite Camp serves children and adults with moderate to severe disabilities. Common diagnoses include autism, cognitive delays, involved medical conditions, multiple disabilities and behavior disorders. Both camps provide a recreation program for campers, and a much-needed break for the parents and caregivers. During their stay at camp, campers will be placed in groups at both camps. Examples of what groups may be is: At Respite Camp, you will find groups of 3-5 campers/counselors; while at Camp Wawbeek, campers and counselors will be placed in groups ranging from 4-7 people.
Student nurses must have taken the the Pharmacology class in order to work as a Student Nurse. Without that class, we have many opportunities as AmeriCorps members to gain invaulable experience working with a diverse group of campers with a range of needs.
