Medical Team

Mike Pringle EMT-P & Family, Portland, OR
"Serving as a medical volunteer at Washington Family Ranch for the last nine years has been a great joy.  It is an awesome privilege and blessing to be able to serve kids' medical needs and to pray for them throughout the week.  Many begin a relationship with Christ and return to camp as Work Crew, Summer Staff and leaders.  My family and I love and look forward to our time each year at ​Washington Family Ranch."

Summer Camp Doctor 

Each week during the summer at Washington Family Ranch, approximately 1,000 campers roll in for the best week of their lives.
To provide the best possible care, we need physicians, nurses, and EMT-paramedics to help us meet the medical needs of the campers and summer volunteers at camp.
All medical team members and their families stay at camp during their week of service in amazing accommodations and enjoy meals with the campers at no cost.

School Season Opportunities 

We are also in need of medical providers for camps during the school season months at Washington Family 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.​

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 by the pool before week’s end. Medical Team members will: 
  • Work with a team of qualified providers 
  • Operate within your scope of practice
  • Provide acute medical care for minor injuries and illnesses 
  • Stabilize and triage those patients who need transport to regional facilities 

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 Sports Center/Canopy are always available during free time.

Who can be on a Medical Team? 

Physicians, nurses and EMT-paramedics are needed on our Medical Teams. See our provider page for more information about physician specialties, Oregon licensing information for physicians and nurses, and Medical Team roles at camp.

How do I sign up?

Contact our office at 541-489-3100 or by e-mail. We’ll be able to answer any questions you may have and review the upcoming summer schedule as well as available spots.

Want to bring a team? Recruit some friends and colleagues to join you for your week. Book early to make it possible to get everyone here the same week. Ideally, each Canyon team is made up of 2 physicians, 2 nurses, and 2 EMT-paramedics, and each Creekside team is made up of 1 physician, 1 nurse, and 1 EMT-paramedic.
