Say Hello to Nurse Jeremiah!

Jeremiah Rush is a licensed Registered Nurse with over a decade’s experience providing compassionate and skilled care to adults and children in many different clinical roles and environments, including school and summer camp settings. He previously worked as a nurse for five different summer camps — most recently at Jewish camps JCA Shalom and Havaya Arts, in Southern California. 

Jeremiah is also passionate about holistic health & wellness and previously worked at many permaculture and naturopathic health centers throughout the world, including Hawaii, Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, India, and the Philippines. He enjoys travel (obviously!), yoga (he’s a certified instructor), cycling, hiking, reading, music composition (he plays the piano and guitar), beach bumming, and gourmet cooking (he’s been known to make ‘the best Kitchari in all of India!’). Growing up, Jeremiah spent summers as a camper and was an athlete who competed in football, soccer, basketball, baseball, cross country, and track & field. 

Jeremiah’s excited to join our community at Maccabi Sports Camp; and considers it a tremendous honor to oversee the health, wellness, and safety of your children this summer.
