Camp Goodtimes could not serve its participants without the trusted care of doctors and nurses that make up our talented and professional Medical Team.
On site, the Medical Team is based out of the "Med Shed" - the health care building on site. In order to provide appropriate health care to campers, volunteers and staff, the medical team is available twenty-four hours a day at each program session. And, although the camp environment is different from that of a hospital or clinic (think jeans and a t-shirt instead of scrubs), the expertise and professional standards of our Medical Team ensure a high level of care for our participants. Every member functions within their scope of practice.
Residents, Fellows, Clinical Associates and Oncologists are recruited from British Columbia's Children's Hospital (BCCH) - other physicians are encouraged to apply.
Finally, due to varying health care needs of our camper population, Camp Goodtimes recruits nurses with a variety of professional experiences. All camp participants (including caregivers), volunteers and staff are required to complete an online application before attending camp.
Medical Team Applications: applications are closed for the season (please check back in mid January when applications open once again)
