2021 Staff Training

Staff training takes place in June, before camp begins.  This orientation is designed to bring us together as a team, and help each staff member familiarize themself with the procedures, policies and values of camp.  Attendance is required.  Training will look a little different this year due to COVID.  Training in-person will be limited, and most of the training will be provided via zoom.  

Information covered in staff training includes some of these topics: a typical day, expectations, diversity, camp purpose/mission, health information, emergency procedures, developmental stages of children, problem solving strategies, and all pool staff are trained in swim instruction and guarding policies and procedures.
