Doctors Program

"​Serving as a healthcare volunteer at Young Life camp for the last few years has been a great joy. To be able to serve kids' medical needs, then to be able to pray for them throughout the week, and then see many begin a relationship with Christ is an awesome privilege and blessing. My family and I love and look forward to our time each year at camp."
-Dr. Walt Larimore, Colorado Springs, CO

Summer Camp Doctor

Each week during the summer at Saranac Village, over 300 high school kids load up and head out 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 doctors and their families stay on camp during the week of service at no cost.

School Season Opportunities

We are also in need of medical providers for camps during the school season months at Saranac. 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 lake. 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.

What about my family?

Your spouse and children are invited to share the week with you. Whether it’s enjoying meals together, swimming in the lake, 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 beach and gym are always available during free time.
