Serving in the Health Center at HoneyRock is so much more than treating scrapes, stings, and distributing medication. It is being a part of a dynamic community of staff, students, and campers. It is critical to fostering a safe environment for all participants. An experience in the Health Center will prove to be rewarding by challenging your leadership abilities and enhancing your existing, professional skillset. Our goals for an experience in the Health Center are that you would develop more fully in Christ and in competency as a leader.
Our Health Center staff is critical to the success of every HoneyRock summer. This team is composed of trained professionals. At the core, health services are provided with consistency by a head RN on staff who supervises and directs the assistant nurse and volunteer RN’s. At least ten volunteer physicians and five volunteer RN’s support the core Health Center team each summer. One of the benefits of being owned by Wheaton College, our health staff is supported by Wheaton College Student Health Services.
