We recruit wonderful college students and professionals from around the world based on their character and proven ability to work with youth and adults in a camp setting. Many of our staff members and volunteers are former campers, who give Takodah a great sense of tradition, community, and continuity. At the same time, we value new staff members and volunteers, who bring fresh ideas and energy to our camp family.
Because safety is always our highest priority, all of our staff members and volunteers pass rigorous applications, interviews, reference checks, and criminal background checks. Our staff members alsoÂ also attend a minimum of one week of training before campers arrive. All of our specialized staff members maintain certifications in their areas of expertiseâ€”such as First Aid, CPR, lifeguard, and ropes courseâ€”to ensure that they meet or exceed American Camp Association standards and industry best practices.
