Our pledge is to put your children in the company of the most trustworthy and capable young adults we can hire – counselors who are well suited to the task of caring for campers. The effort we put into screening and selecting our staff is part of that pledge. Our staff work with your children in the context of a visible, well-scrutinized environment that has many built-in checks and balances. Counselors are supervised by the Camp Directors guided by clear, firm policies regarding behavior. Their actions are visible to co-workers and campers.
All of our camp directors are certified teachers currently working in the classroom. Our college instructors and novice in-service teachers come from the best local and out-of-state universities and colleges. Each employee experiences an intense background and reference check. Our goal is to hire as many science, math, engineering, computer science, and education majors as we can.
We do not hire Certified Instructional Trainers (CITs) or high school students. All college student camp counselors must have completed their freshman year and be enrolled for fall classes to be eligible for hire.
