The camp environment is demanding, requiring intense dedication and work ethic from each staff member. In this section, we attempt to give you a detailed snapshot of the camp schedule. Depending on the time of summer or the specific week or day, the needs of camp and resulting staff hours may vary. We seek and make offers to staff who we believe are capable of thriving in this environment and contributing to camp’s success.

The camp day runs, on average, 10 hours for staff. Each camp varies based on specific needs of the site, with staff generally arriving between 7:30am and 8am and leaving between 4:30pm and 5pm. In addition to these hours, staff are expected to attend a weekly staff meeting, and work three to four weeks of Extended Care. Though each camp’s schedule is unique, below are examples of sample work week:
