Aims & Goals

Sending a child to summer camp is a tremendous act of faith by parents. We take that responsibility very seriously and maintain an environment that encourages health, safety and reinforces a positive self-image.

Our holistic approach is designed to improve a child’s physical, mental and emotional skills as an athlete and, as a result, enable them to reach for their potential. Our ultimate goal is to provide an enjoyable, exciting summer experience that motivates our campers to approach their athletic future with courage, confidence and a feeling of self-worth.

Staff Requirements

Each year, the Academy Camps team is chosen from coaches, students, graduates and faculty from schools and colleges from all over the world. We seek people that are trustworthy, problem-solvers, have a growth mindset, and know how to how to play and have fun. Most importantly, we look for staff members with a sincere desire to work and live with young people. Our camper-to-staff ratio is better than 3:1.


All staff are expected to attend Orientation prior to the campers’ arrival. While most staff are hired for the full summer season, some roles are hired for just one or two sessions. This will be discussed in your interview process and will be written in your offer letter.

Orientation Dates: Sunday, June 16 - Saturday, June 22

Session 1: Sunday, June 23 - Friday, July 5

Session 2: Saturday, July 6 - Friday, July 19

Session 3: Saturday, July 21 - Saturday, August 3


Academy Camps welcomes up to 200 boys and girls per session from all over the United States, as well as, a few foreign countries. The campers range in age from 10 to 16.

Staff Recreation & Time Off

Camp life is structured and demanding. A high energy level is important for a successful summer. We want you to be enthusiastic and happy about your work and recognize that you need some time off for rest and relaxation. In addition to regularly scheduled time off, camp facilities are open to staff in the evening when not in use by the campers. A staff-only lounge, fully-equipped with internet and TV, is open every night. A state-of-the-art Fitness Center is available each evening for counselors. For those interested, there are regularly scheduled staff games and trips to town. Staff receive one day off per session and another day off between sessions.

Helping You Get Started

It’s not easy to adapt to a new situation, even if you are an enthusiastic person. We make the transition for you as easy as possible with a good deal of training and support:

A one-week staff Orientation prior to the campers’ arrival allows for the opportunity to get to know your fellow staff members as we prepare for the summer. We use a variety of formats to acquaint you with situations that will arise during the season. By the end of Orientation, you’ll have a good view of our perspective on camping and our expectations.

Staff meetings are held regularly in small and large groups to enable us to communicate freely and discuss issues and areas of concern. We have an open-door policy at Camp. You are welcome and encouraged to approach the Directors with any of your concerns.
