North Shore Day Camp’s NO Tipping Policy + Counselor Bonus System is unique on Long Island!

  • Compensating the staff should be OUR job – Not yours!
  • Tipping is uncomfortable for both parents and staff — Did you give enough? Did you give too much?
  • Tips can add up to $350 or more to the cost of your child’s summer at camp.
  • End of the summer tips do not positively affect the course of your child’s summer – while it is in progress!

We have a better way:

  • We set aside a $150 to $750 bonus for every counselor above their salaries – so essentially your tips are “on us”!
  • We ask you to send us a confidential evaluation on our staff during the summer, which ensures that we have on-going feedback on how you think our staff is doing.
  • What you say and what we see will be used to give regular in-camp evaluations & performance cash bonuses to our staff during the summer!
