Year Round Staff
Cradle Beach employs 25 year-round staff who work annually at our office in Angola. This staff maintains the property, implements the camper application process, provides marketing, organizes fundraising events, and handles accounting and program support. For more information about staff please contact Debbie Filbey ar (716)-549-6307 ext 217 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally we offer Project S.O.A.R. - a year-round program in which staff secured through AmeriCorps is providing in-school, after school and weekend programming for 3rd -8th grade students in five Buffalo Public Schools- IPrep, Lovejoy Discovery School, Southside Elementary, Lorraine Academy, and South Park High School.
We currently have 19 year round AmeriCorps members. If you are interested in learning more about this program, please contact Nick Schifano at (607)437-6547 or at email@example.com.
Every summer Cradle Beach will hire approximately 115 summer staff. These folks serve as counselors, supervisors, program staff and lifeguards who work directly with campers during the camp session. Cradle Beach counselors are paid a stipend for their work, but all food and lodging are provided by the Cradle Beach while summer camp is in session.
Each of our counselors is required to be at least 18 and have at least 1 year of college. Each new counselor attends a week long pre-camp training session, led by Dale Decker, Director of Campus Based Services. Many counselors are actively pursuing careers in education, special education, recreation therapy, nursing, and social work.
If you are interested in being a counselor, you can either download the application here or contact Dale Decker at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and mailing address and we will mail you an application. An interview, in person or by phone, will be conducted before counselors are chosen. A one week pre-camp training session is required for all new counselors.
