First and foremost, Celebrate Me Week would not be what it is today without our staff. Our staff is 100% volunteer. We are high school students, college students, waitresses, nurses, retail workers, post office workers, social workers, mothers, fathers, etc… What connects us all is a desire to create an ideal week for boys and girls going into the seventh grade.
A large portion of our staff once attended CMW as campers! Our staff volunteers their time for one week as well as training sessions prior to Camp. Not only do they volunteer their time, but each staff member pays a fee to work at Camp in order to keep registration costs lower for our campers.
Approximately 75 staff will be selected to staff each session. With our campers numbers at 112 per session, the staff to camper ratio is greater than 1:2. Here is a break down of Celebrate Me Week’s staff:
- 28 Counselors (14 male, 14 female)
- 20 MAGIC (behind the scenes workers)
- 5 STARS (our “actors” that provide daily skits)
- 3 On-Site Directors

- 2 SOD Directors (Kick off and wrap up each day)
- 2 First Aid Staff
