Summer Camp Staff Employment

"Our daughter has grown in confidence (especially around drama) and in her ability to make friends. We are thrilled with the program and with the support of your staff."


We are proud of the warmth and dedication that our staff bring to our program. Staff members are carefully selected for their enthusiasm, creativity, expertise and educational background. All applicants undergo an intensive hiring process including a formal interview and CORI and SORI background checks. Many of our staff members return year after year and hold teaching degrees and advanced certifications. Swim staff hold the required American Red Cross certifications and Water Safety Instructor certifications. A full time registered nurse is available to attend to the healthcare needs of all campers and staff. We are committed to providing an enriching, safe and enjoyable experience for all.

Camper to Staff Ratios

Overall camper to staff ratios range from 4:1 to 7:1. Coed group sizes range from 15 to 20 campers with three to five staff members. Staffing teams consist of head counselors (college graduates), assistant counselors (college level students) and junior counselors (junior or senior level high school students). Counselors greet campers each morning and assist them with scheduling activities and managing their day. Swim staff carefully evaluate each campers' skill and comfort level before assigning them to an appropriate swim level and small group (four to five campers). Each swim group is assigned a certified swim instructor/lifeguard.
