Our Summer Camp Staff
Our Camp staff are enthusiastic, talented, and caring individuals, 18 years of age or older. We recruit both regionally and from around the world, and carefully select staff based on maturity, program skills, experience, and their ability to serve as role models. We believe that a diverse staff offers girls of all ages the opportunity to meet people from near and far to learn more about people who are different from them. Camp staff are excited about having lots of fun at camp and enjoy helping girls gain a better understanding of themselves and their leadership potential. We expect our staff to maintain high moral standards and act maturely in all areas of their lives during their time of employment. All staff members go through an extensive screening, which includes an interview, references, and background checks. Chosen for their maturity, program skills, and experience with children, they are required to attend an intensive pre-camp training session including safety, activity planning, camper care, teambuilding, and much more. Staff members who supervise high-adventure activities such as the pool, challenge course, archery, carving, and other areas receive additional training and certifications.
At Girl Scouts of Connecticut, the safety and wellbeing of girls is our number one priority. Girl Scouts of Connecticut has strict policies and procedures designed to keep girls safe. If/when we receive a report pertaining to behaviors that may harm others, we move quickly and follow the appropriate protocols as mandated by the State of Connecticut. Providing girls of all ages the tools they need to develop healthy relationships is at the core of Girl Scouts' mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
