HEAD STAFF--Each group at Banbury Kids Camp has a head counselor who is responsible for camp safety, programming, planning, communicating with parents, collaborating and ensuring your camper feels like the most important camper at camp! They are experienced Banbury staff and work closely with Joe to ensure your camper is provided with an awesome summer camp experience.
As a team, Joe and Gail work together year round to ensure campers are provided with the best possible programs and experiences a camp has to offer.
Some of our counselors have returned from previous years and new staff are interviewed and selected by the director and parent volunteers. They are chosen on the basis of their genuine interest in working with children, as well as their character, personality and talents.
COUNSELORS AT BANBURY KIDS CAMP ARE FIRST AID/CPR CERTIFIED AND TRAINED IN USING AN EPI-PEN and DEFIBRILLATOR. Staff are provided with training prior to camp beginning.
Banbury Kids Day Camp is a non-profit summer program for children ages 4-8 that was started by a volunteer parent committee in affiliation with North York Parks and Recreation. We offer a unique summer program for children ages 4-8. Our goal is for our campers to enjoy a wonderful fun-filled experience in a caring, enthusiastic and creative environment.
A low camper/counselor ratio helps each child feel comfortable and
secure whether it is their first camp experience or not. We hire teachers, ECE’s, student teachers, experienced counselors, counselors in training, and individuals who have a passion for the outdoors and for working with children. All references are checked thoroughly.
