What Type of Training Does Your Staff Receive?
Our staff are required participate in a thorough and intensive orientation prior to the start of each season that includes specific training in emergency procedures, adolescent behavior and management, communication, supervision procedures, leadership skills, program writing and preparation, and more. We also provide ongoing staff development and in-service training throughout the summer. Almost all of the members of our leadership team are CPR/AED certified. Many of our specialty area leaders (ex. challenge course leaders, lifeguards, outdoor staff, etc.) are required to participate in area-specific training and/or obtain special certification prior to assuming their roles each summer. All staff are evaluated and provided with feedback throughout the summer to continuously improve their performance.
