Volunteer

The Double H Ranch has made the difficult decision to suspend the traditional Summer Residential Camp 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. At this time we are not accepting volunteer applications for summer programs.
Read the Double H Ranch’s full statement regarding COVID-19 here.

Every set of hands make the work lighter and the applause louder. There are over 2,000 volunteers that support Double H Ranch on a year-round basis. Our pursuit of the greatest, safest camper experience will always include recruitment of caring and qualified volunteers. Whether you have a day, weekend, week or an entire summer, our camp offers a range of volunteer opportunities for you to make a difference by giving your time and talent.

Medical

When you volunteer as part of the team for Paul’s Body Shop, you will be working alongside our camp Medical Director, Nursing Director, and staff nursing team to ensure the highest quality of around-the-clock care for campers.

Ten volunteer nurses per summer session are integrated into the camp cabins and provide unobtrusive medical care. Experienced and caring nurses are onsite for a minimum of one six-day session. If you are unable to commit to a whole week, Camp Inspiration (a ventilator dependent focused week) utilizes nurses and respiratory therapists in 12-hour shifts.

All medical volunteers must be professionally licensed to practice in New York State.

Medical Volunteer Opportunities:  Physician, Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, Respiratory Therapist (Camp Inspiration), Pharmacist (arrival day support)
