Camp Counselors

The Leadership Team is assisted by a staff of approximately 95 trained and experienced camp counselors selected based on their interest in education, camp experience and, above all, their ability to understand and work with children. Staff consists of Roeper School faculty, teachers from other schools, college students and high school students. All activities are taught by counselors experienced in their field- several have been at Roeper Summer Day Camp for many summers. 
All staff members undergo a background check and are CPR certified.

Counselors-in-Training (CIT)

Counselor-In-Training (CIT) positions are available for students ages 14 to 16. This is a volunteer program that allows students to fulfill community service requirements. Directed by Head Counselors, CITs learn how to interact with, care for and supervise children through hands-on experience. CITs are assigned to work with camper groups at various age levels throughout the summer.
