We take great pride in the quality of our superb staff, which consists of college students and education professionals recruited from all over the U.S. and internationally. We often have friends from the UK and other parts of Europe on staff, and every grade level enjoys the company of counselors from Israel.
Each staff member is carefully selected based on skills, prior experience and motivation for working with children. Every individual is interviewed, has references checked and is given a thorough background check in accordance with American Camp Association and Maryland Youth Camp Safety Act regulations.
Furthermore, our supervision ratio exceeds that set by the American Camp Association. We have a high rate of returning staff, which includes “homegrowns” (our term for staff members who also went to Camp Airy or Louise as campers).
