Camp Hale Summer Nurse

Spend your summer working with youth at camp! Camp Hale is looking for a Registered Nurse to join us on the beautiful shores of Squam Lake in Sandwich, New Hampshire!


Established in 1900, Camp Hale is a sleepaway summer camp for Boston-area youth ages 5 to 17 years old to experience a range of outdoor activities in the scenic environment of Squam Lake. At Camp Hale, we believe every child should be able to attend summer camp, regardless of their financial situation. In each camp session we serve around 80-100 youths with diverse backgrounds, including underprivileged and at-risk youth.

We operate on the belief that all youth benefit from opportunities for physical, mental, and social growth and development. The goal is for campers to leave with an enhanced sense of well-being, improved social skills, and awareness of personal potential.

Some of our favorite activities at camp include things like; swimming and boating in Squam Lake, going on day and overnight hikes in the White Mountains, camping on local islands, making s’mores at the firepit, learning how to make shelter and fire, playing sports on the field, doing art and crafts in the art room, stargazing, and so much more!

Our newly renovated camp is the perfect place to spend your summer if you’re looking for fun and rewarding work. We hope you’ll consider applying today!
