Making your child’s camp experience exciting, safe, and memorable is our staff’s top priority. We select staff members based on their character and commitment to youth development. Because we want the best staff possible, all staff members undergo Level 2 background screenings yearly. Additionally, each staff member receives CPR/PR, Oxygen Administration, and First Aid certification prior to camper arrival. Our staff members come together a week before campers arrive to learn our policies, get acquainted with camp, build staff community, and get excited to welcome campers. If you have any questions about our staff selection process, certifications, or staff training, reach out to Allison Vining at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina, Abbi made the move to Florida in November 2017 after managing a campground for three years. She holds degrees in both Spanish and sustainable agriculture from Appalachian State University.
Abbi has spent the last year and a half overseeing before/afterschool programs and summer camps in Clay County with the First Coast YMCA, and boasts over nine years of youth development experience. She is thrilled to take the leap into resident camp and start making an impact with Immokalee campers this summer.
We carefully select our leadership team each summer to support our campers and staff. This team consists of our camp director, assistant camp director, head male and female counselors, and other staff members who have risen as leaders. Together, they plan the fun activities, ensure camp safety, oversee different areas of camp, and help problem solve any issues that arise.
Counselors are a major part of what makes Camp Immokalee so special. As front-line staff, counselors live in cabins with our campers, plan and run activities, build cabin community, and more. Campers look to our counselors to help them have fun, stay safe, and navigate the week. Through their dedication, service, and passion, they embody the principals of a true Immokalean.
From counselors in training (CITs) to alumni to association staff and more, our volunteers are the true soul of Camp Immokalee. Like staff, volunteers are also put through a rigorous screening process. Giving back by working on projects and tasks that make camp great, our volunteers help keep Camp Immokalee alive.
