Camp Spark Staff

Camp Spark Logo

Our staff are vital to ensure we offer a truly life-changing camp experience. These staff range in a variety of related fields and backgrounds. We have adapted physical education teachers, athletic directors, Paralympians, teachers of the visually impaired and certified orientation and mobility specialists! All of our staff have to complete an application, submit references, be interviewed by a Camp Spark director, and pass multiple background checks. These individuals are the best at what they do and we pride ourselves on bringing together the best team possible for our campers.
