Compassionate Care from Trained Staff
Camp Tatiyee’s Greatest Asset
Camp Tatiyee hires only the very best staff members to work with your camper. Our employees are trained to provide superior care for campers, create and participate in programs, and establish the safe, welcoming feeling of the camp.
Committed to Quality
We select staff based on their application, references, and an in-depth interview. We are selective when hiring to ensure that each member of the staff will strengthen and contribute to the team. We do this by pre-employment drug testing and criminal background screening.
The Ideal Staff Member
During the summer season, staff on-site may include people studying or going into the fields of education, medicine, occupational and physical therapies, among others. However, this is not a requirement.
To do this job successfully, applicants must want to be a part of a team, work directly in a caring capacity with campers over a two-month period, be honest, and able to put others’ needs before their own.
Rigorous Staff Training
For 10 days, our staff undergoes rigorous training that includes, but is not limited to, mock fire drills, C.P.R./first aid training, Crisis Intervention Training, missing camper drills, lifting techniques, seizure procedures, dressing, feeding, role-playing, sign language classes and hours of disability awareness activities. We set high standards for our employees.
85% To 95% of Staff Return Every Year
Our return rate for staff continues to be between 85-95 percent every year. If you are interested in working with individuals with special needs, gaining skills and experience, working hard, and having the time of your life, then please contact us or submit an application to us today.
