Physician Program

 

Summer Camp Doctor

Each week during the summer at Malibu Club, around 350 high school kids load up and head out for the best week of their lives. The services of one physician has been incorporated into the weekly team at Malibu to add a safety factor and an additional degree of professionalism to the medical service provided to our guests, participants in the Beyond Malibu hiking program, and to yachters in distress. 

The camp doctor and their family stay at camp during the week of service at no cost.

Physicians who do not hold a valid British Columbia Medical License will need to be aware of the requirements to volunteer as a physician in Canada. Please note that due to Immigration, priority must be given to Canadian residents/citizens.

Please note that some professional health care workers are not eligible to volunteer in the Physician role at the Malibu Club. Examples include (but not limited to) Naturopaths, Chiropractors, EMTs, Nurses, or Nurse Practitioners. Volunteer physicians must be a licensed MD.

School Season Opportunities

We are also in need of one licensed physician for camps during the school season months at the Malibu Club. These camps are shorter (usually over a weekend), quieter, family or adult groups, and more relaxing than summer camping. Contact the Camp office if you are interested in this opportunity.


 

What will I do?

The week can 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 will be to treat minor conditions as well as serious injuries if they occur. The physicians work as a team with the camp personnel in deciding the course of action in emergency situations including deciding which patients need to be transferred to the local medical facility by boat, floatplane or helicopter.

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 their medical license and level of experience and training.

What about my family?

Your children, ages 18 and younger, and spouse 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 scheduled Free Time.
