Here at Camp Mac, our camper-to-staff ratio is about 3 to 1. We take great pride in our staff. The vast majority of our counselors and CITs have come up through the ranks. They know Camp Mac in ways that only a Camp Mac camper can.
In addition to instructing major activities, 16 of our Senior Counselors live in cabins, each with a Junior Counselor (JC), Counselor-in-Training (CIT), and 12 to 16 campers. Senior Counselors must have completed one or more years of college, and are selected for their experience with children in recreation and camping. Most Senior Counselors are former Camp Mac campers and counselors who have been with us for 10 summers or more.
Having completed the 11th or 12th grade, our JCs are carefully selected from our CIT program for their leadership, dependability, attitude, and interaction with others. They must also be qualified to assist in the instruction of a major activity.
In order to develop qualified staff, Camp Mac conducts a CIT program which is limited to 8 boys and 8 girls each term. CITs must have completed the 10th grade, and are evaluated during their last summer as campers by our Senior Staff based on their leadership, dependability, interaction with others, and attitude.
Note: Camp Mac is an alcohol- and drug-free environment. Our staff participates in a random drug testing program.
