Our Medical Team
Camp One Step’s Medical Director, Susie Burke, leads our volunteer medical team. The Camp One Step medical team is comprised of volunteer physicians and nurses who have a passion for working with children and adolescents who are or have experienced the challenges of a life threatening illness. Even though it is important to have staff with pediatric oncology experience, we also welcome staff with other clinical backgrounds such as general pediatrics, adult oncology, emergency, and ICU to name a few. The medical staff work closely together in teams to address the medical needs of each camper. Our goal is to promote the health and well-being of the campers in an atmosphere of fun.
Washington D.C. Program Testimonials from Camper Parents
“[My camper] was afraid to attend camps and has separation anxiety but Camp One Step has been able to help her overcome those fears. Going to Dude ranch helped her be less afraid and more independent.”
“Fitting in and being surrounded by other kids with similar experiences is incredibly special and valuable.”
