A highly qualified staff dedicated to the youth in camp is truly the heart of our program. Every staff member plays a role in the success of our program, including Program Staff, Health Staff, Support Staff, and Administration.
The most vital member of this team is the Cabin Leader. This position is the key to a camper having a successful experience, and hinges on the camper being welcomed into the program with a sense of belonging, a sense of feeling appreciated, and a sense of being respected. The Cabin Leader’s primary duty is to make a child feel safe and at ease, with secondary duties - equally important - of creating a cabin family, positive environment, and encouraging responsibility and independence. All of our Cabin Leader’s instruct activity areas of their interest.
We seek staff who are experienced and trained in the field of youth development and education. Many members of our leadership team work in school systems or afterschool programs. Most of our staff is studying to build a career in education or other youth-oriented fields. All staff complete a training prior to the camp season that includes topics such as:
- Safety and Emergency Procedures
- Creating a Welcoming Environment
- First Aid and CPR
- Program Development
- Leadership Development
- Building Confidence, Healthy Friendships and Positive Environments
