Banner Leadership

The people who work at Banner Day Camp strive to create an exceptional experience for each and every child

At Banner, We Believe In


Each age-level and specialty area has multiple Leadership Team members responsible for working with campers and staff. Every age level is then broken down into much smaller divisions supervised by a single Leadership Team member. This structure allows members of the Leadership Team to work with their specific groups continually throughout the camp day.


Every person who applies for a job at Banner goes through a thorough, face-to-face interviewing process and multiple reference checks. Banner only hires staff members who are highly qualified to work at camp. All staff members undergo an intense, week-long orientation. Banner’s orientation includes training in safety, child development and camp procedures.


From planning and participating in activities, to supervising and guiding staff, to addressing individual camper needs, our staff is committed to ensuring that each camper experiences the best summer of their lives! With a 3:1 staff to camper ratio, our enthusiastic staff members meet the individualized needs of each camper to ensure safe and community-focused fun.

My daughter just finished her first summer at Banner and could not have loved it more! She learned independence, gained confidence, made lots of friends, and spent her days outside with the most wonderful and caring staff. We are already counting down the days until next summer!
