Counselors Lead the Way
We strive to select and train only the best staff
at Emagination Computer Camps. Some of our counselors started here
as campers and some have been with us over 10 years! They are wonderful
teachers, leaders and mentors.
Counselors & Campers Share the Passion for
Counselors are recent college graduates and college students studying
computer science, information technologies, multimedia arts and
design or other related fields. All counselors are adults who share
the campers' passion for computers and digital technologies and
they love working with kids.
(no online tutorials)
Emagination's counselors teach campers using professionally developed
curriculums. We do not use online tutorials which we believe are
a less effective learning tool in a summer camp environment.
At Emagination, campers learn at their own pace with more advanced
campers able to move ahead to more challenging topics. Many workshops
include progressive content that allows campers to repeat a workshop
and advance their skills.
High Standards Mean Great Counselors
We recruit from a variety of colleges and universities, to develop
a select team that meets our qualifications and high standards.
Counselors go through a series of interviews with members of our
management team. The hiring process also includes reference and
background checks. We look for people who have both strong technology
skills and experience with children.
Counselors arrive before the campers and complete Emagination's
in person, on-site training and orientation program that has been
developed over 25 years. We train our counselors in fundamental
teaching skills and set high standards for delivering the curriculum
of their assigned workshops. During this time, counselors are also
trained to handle emergency situations and expectations are set
for staff behavior and conduct. The Camp Director, Assistant Directors
and selected counselors are certified in First Aid and CPR. Come
opening day, staff are prepared for an exciting and challenging
1:6 Counselor to Camper Ratio
Emagination operates at an average staff to camper ratio of 1:6
which significantly exceeds American Camping Association requirements.
Technology Workshops range in size from 5-10 campers. We believe
in nurturing the growth and development of campers one at a time.
Our conservative staff ratios help us accomplish that goal.
