Camp Regis staff are guides and counselors that enhance the campers experience. Staff guide more than just hikes; staff are at camp because they love it and are passionate about the power of recreational activities, the outdoors, and child development. They are educators, parents and specialists. Under the watchful eye of the program staff, enthusiastic skill building helps the campers to grow in confidence and self-esteem while gaining enjoyment from the many activities offered. Camp’s interview process is rigorous because there is nothing more important than your
Camp Regis-Applejack operates all summer long, though some staff may work in shifts given the various sessions we offer. A limited staff will be up at camp before the start of summer to get everything ready and begin training. Training is in full force toward the end of June and then our official summer camp begins June 26th. Though we do send pre-work before orientation, it is one week before campers arrive that in-person training begins.
Staff come to the camp seven days prior to the arrival of the campers so that they can participate in our orientation and conference. It is during this time that we go into our philosophy of camping, program, daily schedule, and expectations. We will expend quite a bit of time dealing with successful ways of working with children. There will also be ample time set aside during this seven day period for the staff to work together getting the activity areas open and preparing the cabins and campus for the campers’ arrival.
During the summer, the administration is always available to give guidance, additional training, and will cooperate to help in any way possible to make the summer successful for both campers and staff. At the close of the camp, staff help to pack the campers’ belongings and close down the cabins and activity areas.
Our staff is much smaller for Family Camp, Grown-Up Camp and MOM Camp. We are here to support you, provide a safe and fun environment and to run main activities. However, we recognize that adults do not need the same supervision (don’t worry- we won’t be sharing your cabins!), and as such, you are free to choose your own adventures throughout your stay.
