Who we have running the place
Each summer we have a staff of around 45 enthusiastic, kind, thoughtful adults. The majority of our staff members are in college or have recently graduated. About half of our staff come from the midwest, the other half come from all around the country and the world. Last summer we had staff from 11 different countries: England, Haiti, Spain, Brazil, India, Poland, the Czech Republic, Mexico, Ireland, Australia, and Pakistan.
When hiring staff, we look for passionate individuals who have prior child care and/or camp experience. We believe it is important for our staff to have a good measure of flexibility, solid communication and listening skills, and a healthy respect for the viewpoints of others. We look for creative, people-centered adults who are capable of taking on the responsibility of being positive role models for our campers. We strive for at least 50% of the staff to hold lifeguard certification and, as part of our staff training, we offer CPR and first aid training to everyone.
