Our summer staff (overnight and day camp) are asked to give their summer to our campers and their experience. We have a good mix of returners and new staff members each summer, all of who go through 40+ hours of training prior to campers arriving. We look for adults (ages 18+) who are enthusiastic about working with children in the outdoors, everything else we can train.
All of our staff (including kitchen and maintenance) are fingerprinted, background checked through FBI, CBI, and TRAILS, a check on the National Sex Offenders sites, have reference checks, plus go through multiple training on Child Abuse Prevention. We are licensed by Colorado Child Care following all laws, and we are accredited through the American Camp Association (ACA) and Praesidium.
