When it comes to staff, we set the standards high. We believe that the staff is the most important part of our program to ensure that your child has a safe and fun camp experience. Our counselors are at least college age and many are studying to be or are teachers, coaches and recreational leaders. We also have Junior Counselors who are high school students. Many have been campers at Cactus Day Camp and have experience working with children and/or an expertise in an activity we offer at camp.
All staff participate in a five-day training where they familiarize themselves with the Cactus Day Camp philosophy and its approach to working with children. Staff also participate in training sessions throughout the summer to ensure the development of our team.
