Camp Staff and Safety
Our staff bring to Camp Little Notch strong leadership, problem-solving skills, love of working with children, ability to model our mission, and a passion for the outdoors. All staff are certified in first aid and CPR. Additional staff have lifeguard certification and/or ropes course facilitator and belay certification. A licensed medical professional oversees the health and safety of campers and staff on site. All applicants are thoroughly screened and participate in comprehensive pre-camp training and orientation. The ratio of counselors to campers is one counselor to every six campers ages 7 and 8, and one counselor to every eight campers age 9 and above. All campers and staff must have a completed and signed health form on file.
Camp Little Notch is inspected twice yearly and receives a permit to operate from the New York State Department of Health. Annual inspection reports are kept on file at the office of Friends of Camp Little Notch, 110 Spring Street, Saratoga Springs, NY.
