CAMP SLOANE YMCA
COUNTDOWN TO SUMMER 2018
Meet Our Staff

Meet Our Staff

Our diverse staff members hail from colleges and universities from all over the United States and beyond! We are proud to say that a large part of our American staff are Camp Sloane camper alumni themselves and our international staff have been vetted and selected for their amazing talents and skills. 

Our staff members have all been background checked and undergo an intensive training program prior to working with campers. Staff training covers important topics such as first aid, CPR and childhood development. Since camp is supposed to be a safe place, bully proofing is also a large part of training. In addition, we employ full time, licensed nurses to attend to your child’s medical needs 24/7 while at camp. 

Year-round professional team

There are 6 people who work at Camp Sloane year round, 4 of whom actually live right on site (lucky!). If you have questions or would like to talk with one of the year round team you can reach them by calling our office anytime (860) 435-2557 or via their personal email address found below.
