EOI Open for Medical / Clinical / Allied Health Volunteers for Teen Camp 2020

Teen Camp provides an opportunity for young people, between the ages of 13 – 17 years to meet and share experiences over a five-day period with other young people who have been impacted by congenital or acquired heart disease. HeartKids Ltd aims to provide a safe, fun and supportive environment for all campers and to ensure this we need the assistance of medical, clinical, allied health and general volunteers to assist our HeartKids’ camp staff through the duration of the camp.

This policy outlines the expression of interest (EOI) and the registration processes for Teen Camp for medical, clinical, allied health volunteer attendees who, by completing the EOI online form, are therefore intending on joining us at Grantville Lodge, Grantville, Victoria 15-19 January 2020, pending the outcome of the EOIs submitted by all applicants.

At the closing date of EOI period, if the applications submitted exceed available places for medical, clinical, Allied Health Volunteer applicants who meet the eligibility criteria, then they will be notified and will be added to a wait-list. ALL EOIs will be considered and will be selected on a basis of eligibility and merit, not on a first in – first served basis. As this Teen camp is a national event, we encourage EOIs from all states and territories within Australia.
