Ask the kids what they like best about Adventure Camps, and many of them will say the counselors. When it comes to choosing his staff, Rory is highly selective. While most of our staff is made up of former Adventure Campers, on rare occasions we meet someone of exceptional talent and character that will come aboard. Each counselor must genuinely love being among children, posses a strong sense of responsibility, and have an honest and direct personal style. It's those qualities, plus an endless supply of energy, an enthusiasm for life, and a great sense of humor, that we look for when hiring an Adventure Camps counselor. Before each new season begins, our counselors participate in special training sessions. During this time, they learn what it means to be an Adventure Camps counselor. Sure, we review safety and logistics, but just as important, we discuss the critical need to treat each child with personal attention and respect. We also challenge for our staff to find ways to make each day exciting and new for each and everyone of our campers and we discuss various ways they can actively engage the kids to achieve that goal.
