Staff members in our summer programs create joyful, often transformative opportunities for campers. To make these experiences possible, our primary responsibility as an organization and as individuals must be the safety and well-being of our campers, staff, and community at all times.

The use or possession of alcohol, tobacco, vapes, non-medically required drugs, and any related paraphernalia or products is strictly prohibited on camp property and at all off-site camper events while summer camp is in session. Prescribed drugs that are medically necessary must be used exclusively for the purpose for which they were prescribed.

Should the medication of a staff or volunteer impair their ability to perform their work safely and effectively, they must immediately inform the Camp Director and Executive Director.

A violation of this policy will be reported to the Executive Director and HR Director and subject to disciplinary action, up to and including potential termination of employment. A second violation of this policy will result in the automatic termination of employment or revocation of volunteer status. This policy does not apply to adult guests participating in family camp programming or attending special functions on camp property.

Certification Week takes place in early June and offers the opportunity for staff to receive training specific to their role at camp. In 2022, Certification Week will be held on the Lanakila/Hulbert campus. Not all staff attend Certification Week. Your employment offer lists the certifications needed for your role at camp and your start date was scheduled to ensure you’d be on campus for any necessary trainings. You’ll receive more information from our Cert Week Coordinator closer to the start of camp but if you have questions now about your arrival date or required certifications, please email Sara Liptrot.
