STAFF GRATUITY:

  • As so many parents have witnessed firsthand through our online programming, our camp staff are extraordinarily hard-working and passionate about providing incredible experiences for their campers. In a normal summer at overnight camp, each staff member is able to leave the campsite during their days off in order to get important time to recharge. For 2021, staff will be required to stay onsite for the duration of the summer. With no offsite options, our staff gratuity fund will help provide resources to maintain morale and provide recreational programs.

  • You may opt-out of the $75 staff gratuity by contacting our office.
