About Us

Our Staff

At Adventureland we believe our day camp is only as strong as its staff. We hire only mature, experienced teachers or child-care specialists for our senior counselors. Our core staff is comprised of outdoor educators and coaches. They are a caring, enthusiastic and professional team.

All counselors, including junior staff, take training orientations and attend daily meetings for ongoing staff development. Our specialized training focuses on the hows and whys of outdoor instruction (Safety First!) and the importance of teaching life skills along with all activities. Counselors are also trained in teambuilding and conflict resolution as part of our “No Bullying” policy.

We have separate facilities and specialist counselors for our Red Cross Swimming Program, Arts & Crafts, Ceramics, Mosaic, Wii, Nature, Archery, Tennis, Outdoor Living, Tandem Zipline, Ropes & Climbing Wall, and Boating & Fishing.

A current First Aid & CPR certification is a requirement for senior counselors and specialists. Criminal background, child abuse and FBI checks are also required of all staff. A certified nurse is on site daily.

A low camper- to- counselor ratio ensures that campers are well supervised at all times and receive the attention they need. Our counselors send home “adventuregram” progress reports each week to foster open communication between parents, counselors and administration.
