—What staff from prior summers have told us
Our mission is to provide the best day camp experience for each member of every family and we hire counselors who can make that magic happen!
NEOC was founded in 2022. In these early years, our staff has made a tremendous and very personal impact on the camp, helping to shape both the camp culture and reputation in the community. The team has developed a work hard, play hard mentality while focusing on creating fun for both counselors and campers. In a gorgeous nature setting, NEOC is alive with learning, discovery, and creativity. Each day is full of singing and spirit. Each week features a theme day. And that is just to mention the fun that goes on during camp days.
The beauty of working at a day camp is that team members have evenings and weekends free of camp responsibility. When the camp day ends, the fun continues:
- Join in weekly, evening events on our NEOC campus or on the campus of our sponsored housing.
- Participate in Host Nights: Our local team members invite team members living in camp sponsored housing to their homes or a local restaurant for a night of hometown food and fun; our team members living in camp sponsored housing return the favor the next week by inviting local staff to participate in dinner and games at their housing.
- Sign up for organized, weekend, day trips to places like the beach and amusement centers!
