Frequently Asked Questions
Jeff Lake Day Camp staff members will be required to wear staff shirts (that will be provided) from Monday-Thursday. Friday is “Jeff Lake Retro T-Shirt Day”! If this is going to be your first summer, don’t worry; we have several vintage Jeff Lake Tees to go around.
General Counselors must also be in sneakers and a respectable bathing suit every day.
Being on staff at Jeff Lake Day Camp is a full 8-week commitment. We do not offer time off for vacations and we have 3 meetings, prior to camp starting, that are mandatory as well. However, working outside everyday and providing a fun and safe environment for your campers is an exciting summer vacation in itself!
If you are a Jeff Lake Day Camp staff member who lives on an existing bus route, you are eligible for door-to-door transportation. However, you may not get picked up from your house, rather at a camper’s house on the bus route in your neighborhood.
If you live outside an area that we bus, you can drive and meet a bus from a nearby area or you may receive a parking spot at camp, however this is not guaranteed, as parking spots on camp property are limited.
The first period of the Jeff Lake Day camp day starts at 9:30am and the day ends at 4:00pm. If you ride on a bus you may get picked at 8:00am and dropped off 5:15pm.
HOWEVER – the day doesn’t have to stop there. After the last bus pulls out of camp feel free to join us at camp Softball Games. They are a great way to meet new and old staff and keep the Jeff Lake Day Camp spirit going into the evening. After hours is also a great time to get together with your counselor to make awards for your group and plan other fun activities.
