Depending on the age group and program, the ratio of counselors to campers is between 1:5 and 1:10. Programs are staffed with a combination of senior counselors, junior counselors, and CITs.
All of our counselors have experience working with children in educational and/or summer camp programs. CRS Summer programs also have a dedicated on-site nurse.
In all programs at CRS Summer, campers are grouped according to age and will spend most of the day in those age groups. However, certain activities might be specific to an age group or skill level, or a combination of both.
One of the benefits of our programs sharing one campus in the summer is that campers of all ages have a chance to play together, recreating the neighborhood community feel.
