Our Staff

Our Trained Counselors Bring Out the Best in Our Campers

Our counselors (we call them “coaches”) are adults who are passionate about working with children. We believe that the time at camp is precious, and our staff members come with the maturity and training to make that time the most enjoyable and beneficial it can be.

Our staff comes to us with a variety of backgrounds and work experience. In addition to having trained clinicians and graduate students on site, our staff are people who have skill sets in the areas of theater, sports, the visual arts, outdoor education, and waterfront management. Overall, we seek out staff who are energetic, ethical, empathic, hardworking and engaged with the world around them.

Every adult at Alsing is excited about working with children with developmental or social differences, and are people who know how to have fun. Our ratio of 1 adult to 3 campers provides campers with the trust and guidance they need, and allows our coaches to know each child’s strengths and needs. Alsing coaches form solid relationships, built on compassion and respect, with each of their campers.

The Clinical Team

Our clinical team is integral to the development and implementation of our program, and to the success of our campers. This team is made up of licensed speech-language pathologists, social workers, and occupational therapists whose job is to support campers throughout the day and provide more focused intervention as needed. Our clinicians are present throughout the entire camp day – they participate in activities, lead group Huddles, and enjoy downtime with campers and coaches. The clinical team also provides in-depth training to the rest of our staff during orientation week, and supports coaches during camp to develop their own skills implementing strategies to support campers.
