Nothing is more important than our staff and we know it.  If you are a hard-working individual who enjoys children, you may be just the person we're searching for.  Staff members must be able to put kids first at all times.  It is also essential that staff members be strong role models for our campers.  And because we're working with kids, we have strict policies in many areas including alcohol, smoking, vaping, curfew, etc.  While it is preferable that our staff members have some experience working with children, this is not a prerequisite.  Many program areas require skills and certifications to safely operate and this is a priority.
