Our camp programs run from June 17 to August 9, 2024. There is a mandatory, intensive one-week training beginning Saturday, June 8, 2024. In addition, all Senior Counselors are required to complete their First Aid and CPR certification prior to the first day of camp. Outpost offers a course for staff to complete this requirement during training week. Staff who are unable to attend CPR/First Aid during training week must get it on their own prior to camp starting. Please consult with us first to make sure you get the correct certification titled “Adult and Pediatric First Aid and CPR (with AED).”
