Our philosophy is that staff are the key to a successful camp experience. They exude positive energy and excitement. Many of our 120 staff are college students who return each year because they find the experience so rewarding. They are selected with care.
Our overall staff to camper ratio is 1:4. Our cabin ratio for staff to campers are the following:
- 5 years & younger – 1:5
- 6-8 years – 1:6
- 9-14 years – 1:8
- 15-18 years – 1:10
They exude positive energy and excitement. Each of our 120 staff go through a detailed interview and background check process; their attitude determines whether they will ultimately be part of the Tockwogh team. Effective staff training is essential. Training covers everything from CPR/First Aid, lifeguarding, horseback riding, and boat driving to working with homesick campers, strategizing to create bonds within the cabin and modeling good behavior.
