From the Director and Leadership to the Camp Owners, the management at Camp Carysbrook is committed to recruiting diverse young women as staff and campers who share the company philosophy and mission. As an organization, we commit to cultivating a community that values a physically and emotionally safe environment and pledge to support camper and staff families to achieve the outcomes that are a hallmark of a summer to remember at Camp Carysbrook for girls regardless of racial, social, cultural, religious, or economic background.
To that end, staff will receive diversity and inclusion training including but not limited to racism, sexism, discrimination based on nationality, sexual orientation, ability, or socioeconomic status, as well as training to combat bias and microaggressions in addition to training regarding privilege and allyship. Campers will receive age-appropriate anti-bias education as part of settling in to their cabin to increase understanding of differences and their value to a respectful and civil society and to actively challenge bias, stereotyping and all forms of discrimination in our community.
Camp Carysbrook is working in conjunction with the Camp Carysbrook Alumnae Association specifically the BIPOC Staff Recruiting Chair and the BIPOC Scholarship Recruiting Chair to reach more staff and campers of color to achieve our goals to attain better representation of the world we live in outside of camp within our community.
