Staff Training and Orientation

Banner Day Camp staff members complete extensive training in health and safety as well as best practices in leading and caring for children. Our orientation is a week-long, in-person experience preparing camp staff with all the skills necessary for a successful summer at camp. Staff also participate in regular staff meetings after camp throughout the summer to brush up on these skills.
