Shibley Group Leaders are experienced teachers and trained professionals who are directly responsible for campers within a given age group. Group Leaders coordinate and supervise all group activities. Group Leaders communicate directly with camper families and report to Junior & Senior Camp Directors.
Shibley counselors spend the day participating in all activities with their campers. Counselors assist with swim instruction, lunch and any other camper needs throughout the day. They are supervised by and directly report to a Group Leader.
Activity Specialists at Shibley supervise specific areas at camp and teach specific skill sets related to that activity, such as Arts & Crafts, Athletics, Adventure Park/Ropes Course, Climbing Wall, Air Bungee, Science, Cooking etc.
Aquatics Staff members must have Lifeguard Training, Nassau County Lifeguard Certification, and CPR certification. Lifeguards work directly with campers under the supervision of the Swim Head at one of our 4 heated pools.

Lifeguards maintain records of each camper’s swim progress and supervise recreational swim in the afternoon.
