Meet Our Staff
Two to four staff will run camp each day.
Staff are experienced in child development and with special needs, First Aid/CPR certified, and have cleared background checks.
In order to provide your child the highest quality of care, staff are provided training and mentoring in developmental, play-based approaches and techniques prior to, and throughout, camp.
Volunteers are encouraged to join us, and benefit from learning the latest science supported tools while getting to share in this uniquely fun, collaborative, imaginative experience.
All staff and volunteers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
