ABSTRACT: Camp nursing offers a unique opportunity for nurses to invest their skills in a novel setting. Nurses fill an essential role in the camp environment and have opportunities to practice a wide variety of tasks with diverse populations of children and teens. The purpose of this article is to inform potential camp nurses of the skill set and aptitudes most inclined to ensure a successful and satisfying camp nursing experience. Serving at a Christian camp also allows nurses to reflect Christ and invest in the faith journey of campers and staff.
