A Day in the Life of Camp Staff


Camp at Markin GlenCamp <st1:placename w:st="on">Staff arrive at Camp at 8:15 am to get their program materials ready for each day. We start each day with a team huddle at 8:20 am, where we learn new activities each day and answer last-minute questions. Campers arrive between 8:45 and 9:00 am and are dropped off by the bus or their parents. Staff who are on bus duty for that week will arrive at 9:00 am with the campers.

Once all campers have arrived, we begin Rally Roundup (our Morning Flagpole Ceremony) with daily announcements, songs, and activities. From 9:30 am to 2:30 pm, you and your co-educator will lead your group in activities that you planned and organized that are relevant to the week’s theme. Staff eat lunch with their camp group on the grounds.

Each day around 2:30 pm, all groups meet back at Camp for group games and activities. Afternoon Rally Roundup usually happens around 4:15. Campers leave on the bus or are picked up at 5:00 pm.

Once the grounds are ready for the next day’s activities, you are free to leave. If you have an overnight camp out, you will begin the evening’s activities.
