Staff and Alumni

Staff

Camp Cormorant staff take their job seriously ensuring all kids are treated equally and having a blast at camp. Camp staff also know how to have fun! They interact with campers knowing they are making a lasting impact on the campers experience and helping to create positive, fun memories! All of our staff are screened and selected on the basis of their enthusiasm, maturity, skills and desire to work with children. They attend camp specific training sessions that focus on child safety, effective camp leadership, facilitating fun activities and the responsibility as models for campers. They are also all certified in CPR and First Aid.
