Codys staff join us mostly from colleges and universities within the USA. Having a good match between staff and camp is very important. We look for staff who have strong skills in a teaching area, plus a GENUINE interest in working with children. We hire staff who come to camp to give of themselves to campers. Our staff also have the necessary levels of maturity, common sense, dependability, trust, and selflessness required in working with children. We have high expectations and requirements for behavior. All program staff are activity instructors or assistants. Non-program staff work in office, dining, maintenance, and medical areas.
