Staff Care & Programming

We believe strongly that "taking care of other people's children" can only happen if we first take care of ourselves. This is why each and every summer, we work on improving our staff experience. Over the years, we have add specialty staff programs at night, expanded opportunities for professional development, added a 'staff support' position, and expanded the amenities of our staff lounge.

Staff Time off & Support

Working at camp is one of the most incredibly rewarding jobs one can have, and it is also a challenging one. We work hard to ensure that in addition to a day off every week, each day has dedicated time for staff to relax during the day and also at night. Additionally, our full-summer staff have the opportunity for an overnight day off during the summer. Throughout the summer, our team works to find more spaces for time-off as in order for you to bring your best selves to the job and create the most impactful summer experience!
