Work Life

A typical day for Support Staff will involve arriving in the morning at 7:00am and going to each room to set up.

Some logistical tasks include weekly trips to Costco to purchase supplies, as well as more frequently quick trips to nearby grocery stores or restaurants to pick up food for snack or lunch.

Lunch is distributed by the Support Staff to campers/other staff  from 12:30pm untill 1:00pm. Support Staff will then have a 30 minute lunch break from 1:15pm-1:45pm. The Support Staff may also take two 10 minute breaks during the day at their discretion provided it does not interfere with their duties.

After campers leave for the day at 3:00pm, Support Staff will go to each room and make sure it is tidy and ready for the following day.
