WHO WE HIRE
The secret of TIC’s success over the past three decades is our wonderful staff. Our personal kind of teaching requires a high counselor to camper ratio: 1:4 in technology, 1:6 in athletics. TIC chooses staff for their talent, energy, sensitivity, and desire to share their enthusiasm with kids.
Our counselors attend some of the best universities and colleges in the U.S. and around the world. They are highly skilled in technology and/or athletics. But it is their caring— about kids and teaching—that makes them so effective and adored by the campers.
Counselors must submit a completed application and three references to be considered for employment. Each candidate is personally interviewed and carefully reviewed for knowledge in their area of expertise AND aptitude for teaching AND their love of kids. All staff are screened and required to complete a full background check.
With over 40 hours of training in a variety of formats (online training before camp begins, 28 hours on-site staff training, and weekly in-service workshops throughout the summer), our staff are ready to focus on what is important – CAMPERS!
