Summer Youth Staff
Our innovative instructors, experienced coordinators, and responsible counselors strive to create a memorable summer for students. The staff and instructors for Summer Youth Programs are our biggest assets – bringing specialized skills, enthusiasm and creativity. Each summer, we hire experienced coordinators who specialize in camp management and recreational leadership skills.
Our Instructors are teachers who work in public or private schools from the greater Seattle area. We also hire UW-affiliated faculty and students who bring subject-area expertise.
Program counselors are often UW undergraduate or graduate students who have experience working with young students.
All counselors and senior staff are CPR and First Aid certified.
The UW Human Resources Department runs background checks on Summer Youth Program staff through the Washington State Patrol.
