As you consider working for Summer at LA this summer, please review the following professional guidelines.
Health + Well-being
The health and safety of all our campers and staff is our highest priority. No matter what position you occupy, it will be your responsibility to help make Summer at LA an environment in which campers can learn and grow in a way appropriate for their age. Extended care, bus rides, small group time, electives, Double the Fun courses, full day camps, free time, residential floors, and trips all need to be places where campers feel physically, emotionally, and intellectually safe, even when being challenged. Enforcement of camp guidelines concerning camper conduct is essential to this objective.
Substance Free Workplace
The use of drugs or alcohol at Summer at LA is strictly prohibited. Because each staff member is responsible for the safety and well-being of campers, we feel it is necessary to mandate a high standard for staff concerning the use of drugs and alcohol. At no time should any staff member on- or off-duty be under the influence of illegal or other non-medicinal drugs or possess them on-campus. At no time should any staff member be under the influence of alcohol on-duty or return to the campus while under the influence after being off-duty. Use of alcohol by off-duty staff over the age of 21 is restricted to off-campus.
Safety + Inclusion
Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated at Summer at LA. We take issues of sexual, racial, ethnic, religious, and physical harassment very seriously. Summer at LA strictly prohibits its directors, managers, and employees from harassing any member of its staff or camper population.
Professionalism + Commitment
We take seriously the commitment you are making when you apply for a position. Once you have accepted a position, Summer at LA will incur obligations and make commitments to participants based on your being available at the program. Any sudden cancellation of your involvement could severely damage the program’s quality and cause irreparable economic loss to Summer at LA. Please, only apply for a position if you are prepared to make a commitment to work for Summer at LA during the full summer program. This spring, if you plan to look for full-time employment after the summer is over, it is possible that a potential employer will wish you to start during the summer. If this would prevent you from fulfilling the entirety of your responsibilities to Summer at LA, you should not consider applying for a position at Summer at LA at this time.
