At Friendship Circle’s summer camps, safety is our number one priority. Friendship Circle will ensure that there is a minimum of one staff member/group leader for every five inclusion campers. In addition, we will work to provide volunteers on a 5:1 basis. Friendship Circle has designated senior staff member Nancy Sinelli as the safety supervisor during camp sessions. Her role will be to ensure that all safety guidelines are followed meticulously during all camp trips and activities.
Staff and Volunteers
All staff members and group leaders are handpicked for their experience and dedication to working with children and fostering relationships in a truly inclusive way. Our counselors are specially trained and briefed on each camper to ensure that everyone have the safest and most exciting summer possible! We aim to pair our inclusion campers with a volunteer on a 5:1 basis. Please keep in mind, many volunteers go away for the summer, so we cannot guarantee that your child will always have the same volunteer.
