Frequently Asked Questions

What is the staff to child ratio at Camp Crosser?

There is one staff member for every ten campers. Camp Crosser Counselors in Training (CIT) are youth members that may also be present. A CIT is a youth that is too old to come to Camp as a camper, but wants to continue to experiencing Camp Crosser while also enhancing their leadership skills and helping and learning from the counselors.

Child Medication Information

Camp Crosser does not have a nurse on staff. Though all full-time staff are CPR/First Aid certified, we are not allowed to dispense medications of any kind to members. If your child is taking a prescribed medication, it is the duty of the parent and child to ensure the staff is aware of medication to be taken by the member. We will assist only in helping to remind the member to take his/her medication. All medication must be given to Camp Staff at the beginning of each day for safe storage. All medication will be returned at the end of the day. If you have questions or concerns regarding medical needs, please contact us to discuss them.

Camp Crosser Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program

When a child becomes too old to be a camper, we hope he or she seeks to develop leadership skills while still experiencing Camp Crosser through our Counselor-in-Training Program. This program is designed for members between the ages of 13 and 17 by June 1 who are interested in growing as a leader while still experiencing Camp's fun.

The Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program focuses on areas of leadership skills, conflict resolution, child development and group dynamics. Development and knowledge in these areas will foster growth in ability to be a great leader and counselor. The Club Staff will evaluate CITs at the end of their sessions, which could assist them in gaining a staff position in the future. The CIT program accepts participants who are club members and costs a weekly fee of $40.

Applying to be a CIT

CIT applicants should have in interest in working with children and possess a strong work ethic, flexibility, maturity, and the ability to have fun. Due to the competitive nature of the program and few available spots, applications are important and help determine the applicants suitability for the program.
