Staff, above all, makes Blue Bell unique among day camps. With an average age over 30 (and all over 21), each counselor at Blue Bell is a specialist in a single activity; no general or group counselors, no C.I.T.'s. As professional teachers and coaches, each is hired for his experience in working with children, his technical knowledge in his field, and a love of camp, camping and kids. Mature staff, we find, have abundant skills to offer, and know how to capture children's attention and imagination while keeping parent-like supervision over their activities and car pools.
