YSC Staff Members Coordinators, Counselors, and Swim Instructors
The majority of the YSC staff members (coordinators, counselors, and swim instructors) are students at CSU. We also hire coaches and teachers who have a passion for summer camps. We receive hundreds of applications every summer, so we are very selective about whom we hire to work with the campers. Counselors are selected for their teaching and coaching skills, sports knowledge, passion, and desire to make a difference in the lives of the campers. We truly believe that our staff is amazing and that we have the best people possible. Our staff members care about your children – take a minute and get to know us. We’re here to help!
