How does the diet work for the staff?

Everyone is served the same quantity on the cafeteria serving line. After the entire Camp is served, non-dieting staff are called up for additional food. There is no limit on quantities served, though on occasions, depending on demand, the Chef may need to place limits. Overweight counselors are required to follow the diet and are required to sign a commitment to stay on the diet. No one is allowed to bring outside food onto Camp.

Do I need to see a doctor before I arrive at camp?

You will need to complete the camp health form. If by chance while you are at Camp you need emergency medical services we will need this form. Physician and off-camp medical services are the counselors’ financial responsibility, and can be paid directly through your health insurance or by salary deductions.

Does my day off change every week?

No, during orientation you will choose which day off you would like and every week it will be the same day. If on that day there is something going on at Camp, such as a session change, you will be assigned a different day off for that week. Your nights off and days off will remain the same throughout the summer.
