Our program, staff, facility and culture make Buckley unique!
Our high retention rate of 65% allows parents to feel comfortable seeing familiar faces and confident that the right people are caring for their children.
All Buckley Day Camp staff participates in extensive training before each summer. Training topics include child development, behavior management, using transition times effectively, basic first aid, teamwork, how to teach to different learning styles and effective communication. Additional training and certification is required for all staff working in the Nurses’ Office, Aquatics Program and Outdoor Adventure Program.
In order to ensure a high level of quality experience for each camper, our staff continues the training throughout the summer with individual and group meetings with our administration.
We believe that communication is crucial to ensure that you feel comfortable with the experience that your child is having. In addition to a pre-camp phone call, you will receive regular phone calls and/or emails from your child’s Group Leader. Each week you will also receive email newsletters from the camp administration informing you of important events at the camp and general information. Families also receive progress reports from the Aquatics Staff throughout the summer so you know how your child is progressing during swim instruction.
