Staff members are superheroes to their campers!

Your most important role at Camp Sewataro, whether you’re Group staff, Activity staff, Waterfront staff, or Office staff, is keeping campers safe and healthy, serving as a positive role model, helping campers learn and grow, cultivating a space where everyone belongs, and making sure everyone is having the summer of a lifetime!

Each day begins and ends on a high note. After morning announcements (complete with cheering and hoopla!), groups head out to their first period activity. With an enriching schedule consisting of 3 activity periods in the morning, and 3 activity periods in the afternoon, (lunch is in between, and each counselor will get a break during lunch), and an all-camp end of day songfest, the days fly by!

Group counselors will stay with their assigned group, and will travel with these campers throughout each day, accompanying them to each activity - including swim twice a day! Part of the excitement is participating in each activity with your campers as you learn a new skill, laugh, play, and challenge yourself. Staff will also have additional responsibilities during arrival and dismissal.

Activity and Waterfront staff are stationed at either their activity, or on the waterfront, and receive groups as they arrive each period, ready to teach them the following three simple precepts that are a hallmark of each Sewataro activity: play safe, make it fun, and teach the skills! All Activity and Waterfront staff members are assigned to a “home base” camper group, where they will support their campers and co-counselors in the morning, during lunch, and at the end of the day.

Camp is divided into four main sections; Fox (Kindergarten & 1st grade), Bear (2nd & 3rd grade), Eagle (4th & 5th grade), and Owl (6th - 8th grade). Each section is led by an experienced supervisor who supports each counselor and camper, and contributes to the one-of-a-kind Sewataro Spirit! Along with your Supervisor, you’ll be surrounded by a team of assistant supervisors, activity heads, community support team members, and directors who are here to support and help with anything you may need.
