Staff Packet

Welcome to Camp Olympia’s Staff for 2024!  You are about to embark on what we are sure will be one of the most O-Mazing and memorable experiences of your life.  We have included everything we think you will need in order to help you prepare to have the best summer ever!  This counselor “packet” lists all your paperwork that is required to have on file, packing list, as well as the counselor manual you need to read. So let’s get started….

COUNSELOR TRAINING SCHOOL (CTS) ARRIVAL

Remember it’s not only mandatory, but it’s a BLAST!

Returning Counselor:  Plan to arrive by 5:00pm Saturday, May 18th.  We will check in at the Nexus building.

New Counselor:  Plan to arrive at Olympia between 1:00 – 2:00pm on Sunday, May 19th.  If you will be traveling a long distance and need to come in Saturday the 20th that will be fine, but please make arrangements with Cody and/or Michelle ahead of time.

Staff Flying In:  Please fly into Houston Intercontinental Airport on Saturday, May 18th.  We ask that you try and book your flight between 1:00 – 3:00pm. Contact Andy with your flight information, so he can make sure we have all of your information to meet you at the airport.

Check In Process: We will begin opening our gates by 1PM and ask that staff arrive between 1-2PM. You will drive through the gates and be greeted by our staff, just like on Opening Day with our campers.  Once greeted and checked in, you will be directed to where you will be staying for the week.  Staff will be down in the clusters to help you unload and then you will drive your car back up and park in the counselor parking lot.  From there, a staff member will pick you up and bring you down to the main part of camp to begin the FUN!
