Summer staff are the bread and butter of our Summer program. Summer staff typically hail from the tri-state area, we also employ ‘International Staff’ often from Europe. These young professionals all come together two weeks before the start of camp for staff training. We have an intense training program which blends leadership, faith, and community to prepare our ideal summer staff. We take hiring these inspired young individuals very seriously, and we have stringent requirements for your child’s caretakers. All staff members, regardless of their role must pass a background check. We do thorough interviews, and hand select the best young leaders to enhance your child’s camp experience.
