What are the qualifications for counselors?
Camp Foley prides itself on years of quality staff. Our camp chooses adults who will be positive role models for our campers. Before hire, a counselor must complete an application, have three character reference forms and complete a standardized, personal interview. We must be assured of their communication skills, personality, self-image, interpersonal skills, values, maturity and intellect. Counselors must have the knowledge, experience and ability to instruct at least camp two activities.
Before working at Foley, a counselor must sign a commitment to the values and philosophy of Camp Foley and complete a background check including a check of the National Sex Offender Registry.
Prior to camper arrival, our counselors complete an 11-day training program where they rehearse emergency procedures and attend seminars that instill the goals and objectives of Camp Foley in our counselors. Counselors are continuously evaluated through the summer by our team of directors and assistant directors, who are on site every day, eat all their meals with the kids, attend (and sometimes teach) their activities and are in and out of their cabins each evening. Learn more about the directors here.
