STAFFING:

In each session, children will be taught by an instructor (a full-time professional with a degree in physical education and currently teaching) and at least one counselor (all of whom are Lafayette College students). We place a maximum of 20 children in a session to maintain a 1:10 staff-to-student ratio. Several activities maintain smaller ratios due to the nature of the activity. This ratio improves our ability to give each child plenty of “on-task time” for experimenting with and practicing various skills.

POLICIES & PRACTICES:

  • A trained medical professional is always on the premises.
  • All camp operations staff and all counselors are CPR certified and trained in first aid.
  • Drinking water is readily available at ALL activity sites.
  • All children are swim tested and an alternative activity is provided for those who do not pass.
  • Full refunds granted for requests prior to June 1st. For requests after June 20th, a $50 deposit is withheld. No refunds will be granted after June 20th.
