Position: Mental Health Professional
Location: Camp Kesem
Details: Kesem is a national non-profit organization that provides kids who are affected by a parent/guardian’s cancer a free week of summer camp.

This summer, we are hosting the camp from May 30th to June 4th at YMCA Camp Winona (which is around 30 minutes from Daytona and 2.5 hours from Gainesville). We currently have 65 campers signed up and expect more to sign up and register.
Mental Health Professionals (MHPs) should be passionate about ensuring the well-being and general safety of children and staff members. The MHP provides multiple layers of support as needed to campers, their families, counselors, and other staff at camp, most of which is focused on emotional and behavioral needs that emerge. The MHP works as part of the Health & Wellness Team (two nurses and a camp counselor).
- Have a Master’s in psychology, social work, or a related field
- Must complete required training
- Must pass a background check
- Must be available for the entirety of camp and remain on campgrounds the length of the session
- Support for camp staff to help ensure the well-being and preparedness of camp staff when dealing with emerging camp situations.
- The MHP is NOT a therapy provider or caregiver: we do not provide therapy to campers, their families, counselors, or any other staff members
