Camp is a dynamic work environment. It is the primary duty of staff to be responsible for the students in your care.

Staff is expected to be reliable. To participate in camp there are schedules for staff, intended to provide time off, nested in the camper schedule that is designed to follow the program. Staff who are not reliable tend to damage both the rotation of time off and may also impact the camper experience.
