Each staff member brings with her a level of expertise to her respective activity. The majority of the Administrative Head Staff come back year after year while a healthy balance is found between hiring new counselors who add fresh energy and new ideas with returning camper/counselors and/or veteran staff members.
Our thorough screening procedures include both personal and employment references with questions that focus on qualifying and vetting potential staff that are warm-hearted, adaptable, sincere, have proven ability to persevere, experience working with children, and a host of other factors which we think predict success in the Camp Mataponi setting. In addition to reference checks, every staff member is screened with a criminal background check. All of these steps are taken at great length so that we can ensure you that your daughter is getting the most qualified counselors she can have.
