Doctors Program

 

Summer Camp Doctor

Each week during the summer at Frontier Ranch, more than 400 high school kids load up and head to the mountains of Colorado 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 at camp during the week of service in amazing accommodations at no cost.

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 his or her medical license and level of experience and training.

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


Sending Mail to Camp

A special thing about camp is the opportunity to send and receive snail mail! We love when friends or family send our volunteers goodies in the mail but please keep in mind that it can take 2-3 days longer than estimated to arrive at camp! Also, because there is so much mail coming into town and up to camp, please ensure that ALL mail is addressed as follows:

Name - Week # Doctor

PO Box 2025

22150 CR 322

Buena Vista, CO 81211 


Some important tips: if the company says they don't deliver to a PO Box, please add #2025 to the top line (some mail still gets routed through the local Post Office). Also, UPS/FedEx may say that the above address cannot be found - ask them to override the system and leave it as listed (our local drivers know how to find us!). 

​If mail arrives after the recipient has left camp, it will be returned to sender.​
