Medical Staff

The Medical Staff plays a critical role in overseeing and maintaining the health and safety standards of Ionian Village, working in close collaboration with the Camp Director to ensure the well-being of all campers and staff. Before applying to be part of the Ionian Village experience, it's important for all potential Medical Staff Members to fully understand their responsibilities in this capacity. Ionian Village welcomes applications for Medical Staff and is particularly interested in energetic doctors, nurse practitioners, and nurses who actively practice their faith, possess youth work or camping experience (preferred but not required), and are enthusiastic about working in a dynamic camp environment.

Medical Staff responsibilities at Ionian Village include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Available to serve for the duration of either Session One or Session Two
  • To oversee all aspects of health and safety of campers and staff at Ionian Village, while working within the framework of the established Ionian Village program and policies under the direction of the Camp Director.
  • To secure, dispense, and oversee all medications (OTC and prescription) administered at camp.
  • To provide all aspects of medical care and supervision of any medical problems while maintaining accurate records of all interactions.
  • To comply with all of the policies and procedures of the Ionian Village program, as outlined in the Medical Staff Handbook.
  • To be an active and present part of the Ionian Village program, and to contribute to the Christ-centered environment.
  • Act as a chaperone on Arrival/Departure Days at the airport and while on board the flights, until you have reached Greece/America. Only in the case that there is enough coverage will you be able to extend your time in Greece, at the discretion of the Director.

Medical Staff Travel & Registration Expenses

Ionian Village covers your round-trip airfare between JFK and ATH at the start and end of the program session you are serving. The cost of air travel for your family, if attending, is at your own expense. Any deviations from this must be approved in advance by the Director and are at your own expense. As we rely on our Medical Staff and Clergy to chaperone campers to and from Greece, please clear any additional travel in Greece prior to or after the program session dates with the Director. Children of Medical Staff participating in Ionian Village as campers may receive a discount on the registration cost.
