At Triple C, our staff are our most valuable resource. Many return each year domestic and abroad. Chosen for their expertise and maturity, our staff are committed to helping every camper enjoy their days and grow as individuals during their experiences at Triple C Camp.

Staff spend a full week learning all that makes Triple C Camp special.  Risk Management, safety procedures, positive discipline, creek time, the ropes course, soccer dodge ball, chill out time, and so much more. Our staff have the opportunity to experience an overnight in the same format as our campers.

The experiential component of our training week make for a great understanding of the growth and developmental needs of our campers.


Safety & screening

Safety is the most important thing at camp. Since our staff are the key to the success of the summer, preparing and training our staff is of the utmost importance.

Every staff member goes through a detailed interview process which includes an application, phone interview, in person interview, reference checks, back ground checks, follow up interview questions and a visit to the property to meet in person when and where possible.

Resumes often indicate skill sets which must be demonstrated and evaluated to camp leadership before participating or leading our campers.

We believe that children are the most important thing in their parents lives and we take the responsibility of being a staff member at Triple C seriously, with a lot of FUN!
