Our staff is hired on the basis of values, passion, skills, and a genuine love for children. Our unique and careful interview process allows us to identify candidates who have the intelligence, compassion, skills, and motivation to be a successful Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan staff member. All candidates are interviewed by one or more of our camp directors. We also do reference and background checks for all potential staff members.
Every staff member, whether new or returning, arrives at camp early and has an extensive training period before your daughter arrives that includes the Girl Scout camp mission, certifications, age level characteristics, a girl-first mindset, and more . We use varied training techniques to provide our staff with the insights and tools that enable them to properly care for your daughter and offer a fun-filled session.
Our camp staff is CPR and First Aid certified and receives training and certification for the activities they guide and supervise. They are also trained to carry out emergency procedures, including those in the event of severe weather. As such, certain camp activities may be cancelled or postponed to ensure the safety of our campers and staff.
