Meet Our Staff

The success of Camp Excel is largely due to the expertise and dedication of our staff.  Our staff consists of professional staff and camp counselors.  The professional staff includes the Director; Assistant Directors; Certified Special Education Teachers in the classroom; Certified Physical Education Teachers for sports skills training; masters Level Therapists to facilitate social skills groups and a Full-time Registered Nurse to provide first aid and administer medication.  Our Camp Counselors are all adults, mostly teachers.

 

Camp Excel maintains a 3:1 ratio of children to staff.  Each group is assigned a Lead Counselor and two or three additional counselors.  These counselors remain with their group throughout the day and for the entire program.  This consistency promotes campers bonding with other campers and with Counselors.

 

Prospective staff are very carefully interviewed and reference checks are completed. Fingerprinting and criminal background checks are required for all employees.  Camp Excel has a very high rate of experienced staff returning each summer.

Testimonials

We were very happy with how Camp Excel was run and the feedback that we received daily. Our son loved going to camp daily and got prepared for camp in the morning like we had never seen before!

Camp Excel is the single best thing I have ever done for my child.

The only thing that would make Camp Excel better is if it never ended.

I would like to thank you. You have no idea what a gift you have given my son. Camp Excel is an answered prayer.

This has been a tremendously important experience for our son and for us and may well have made it possible for him to have a successful transition back into school after being out of school for 3 ½ months in the spring. We are tremendously grateful. The parent group was exceptional; Kathy is an amazing facilitator .

Our first year at camp and we all loved it! Scheduling, activities, counselors were amazing. Loved the feedback given on the social skills assessment. Also liked the parent meetings. So nice to have the opportunity to meet with other parents in the same situations. We’ll most definitely be back next year. Thanks for all your help and guidance.

My daughter had a great summer! I’ve noticed a big difference in how she interacts with other kids at the playground.

Gracie loved Camp Excel, and asked to go back “every year”. We were thrilled too—she had a wonderful summer, due in large part to Camp Excel. Thank you!

Great program, wonderful counselors!!
