Our Team

A handful of our summer team from 2017

The Summer at LA Team is incredible. We are so fortunate to have a staff made of energetic, talented, ambitious, and intelligent individuals who have led our camp to greatness. With the vast majority of our team over 18, and all directors over 21, our mature and responsible staff is excited to lead your child through an excellent summer.

Our activity specialists and camp directors are all very experienced in their field. Many of our sports programs are directed by Lawrence Academy Varsity coaching staff. Our lifeguards, swimming instructors, and archery instructors are all certified. Also, all staff must be CPR certified, as well as pass an extensive background check including CORI, SORI, and fingerprinted for state and national criminal record checks.
