Medical Program

Summer Camp Physician

Each week during the summer, over 400 high school kids load up and head out to SharpTop Cove for the best week of their lives.

To provide the best possible care, we need physicians* to help us meet the medical needs of the campers and summer volunteers at camp.

All camp physicians and their families stay at camp during the week of service in amazing accommodations at no cost.

School Season Opportunities

We are also in need of medical providers for camps during the school season months at SharpTop Cove. These camps are shorter (usually over a weekend), quieter, and more relaxing than summer camping. Contact us if you are interested in this opportunity.

What will I do?

The week will be busy - more like a mission trip than a vacation! But we’ll do our best to get you relaxing with your family by the pool. Services of the physician take the nature of a screening function. The physician assists the other camp medical personnel in deciding the course of action in emergency situations including deciding which patients need to be transferred to the local medical facility.

The physician must also adequately document the medical record to reflect the care that has been given.

At no time should any physician practice medicine that falls outside of their medical license and level of experience and training.

Contact us for more information about the medical program.

What about my family?

Your spouse and children, ages 17 and younger, are invited to share the week with you. Whether it’s enjoying meals together, swimming in the pool, or watching Young Life summer camp in action - you are sure to have a great time. Time and space permitting, your family will have an opportunity to experience the many activities around camp. The pool and gym are always available during free time.

*Must be licensed in the state of Georgia. However, out-of-states nurses are eligible if licensed in a state that participates in the Nurse Licensure Compact. Georgia-licensed physician assistants are also eligible.
