These include but are not limited to: administration; food service, landscaping; laundry; medical clinic; construction and maintenance.
The staff to camper ratio is one camp staff member to six children.
The camp personnel go through a week of intense training just prior to camp. Counselors are also trained in First Aid and CPR. Counselors serving as lifeguards have gone through Red Cross certification. Many counselors serve in consecutive years.
Campers are shuttled to different activities in college-owned vans with counselors passing driving examinations administered by the college security department.
Before camp begins, all preparation is done through the Community Service program office. The Camp Program Director is also responsible for implementing of all Camp Activities while the Community Service Coordinator organizes the logistical side of camp. A student office worker will man the camp office once camp begins.
