What are the qualifications and requirements for the camp staff?
Camp Iredell: All staff must be at least 18 years old, and all bus drivers are at least 21 years old with a valid commercial drivers’ license (CDL) issued through the NC DMV (50-75% of the staff are bus drivers/counselors, 21 or older). All staff are First Aid and CPR certified, go through a 15+ hour staff training, and must pass a drug test and background check prior to employment. We look for staff to have experience in education, child care, recreation, or similar fields.

Staff are also First Aid and CPR certified, go through a 15+ hour staff training, van driver training, and must pass a drug test and background check prior to employment.
