Medical Professionals

As much as Camp is a life-changing experience for the children who attend, it is a powerful and rejuvenating opportunity for the medical staff that cares for them. We welcome licensed health care providers to volunteer their time and skills to participate in making the dream of camp a reality for children with medical conditions.

When you volunteer as part of the Well Shell team, you will be working alongside our camp Health Center Director, Medical Director and Nurse Manager. Our leadership team includes a pediatrician and nurse practitioner. Some volunteers will be specialists in the conditions we are serving; however, we do need general medical volunteers to round out our team. All medical professionals must be licensed in the state of California.
