Our multiple in-season staff evaluations, backed up by performance based bonuses, have no equal in the summer camp profession.

Small Groups With Exceptional Supervision

North Shore is known for its ideal group size and exceptional staff. With excellent staff to camper ratios, we ensure the best possible care and supervision so that we can keep YOU informed.

Division Leaders and counselors review each camper’s day, EVERY day. Phone calls are made home regularly by Division Leaders to keep you up to date regarding everything from your child’s swim progress to new friendships to what they ate for lunch. We believe that communication is essential in facilitating the most secure environment for our campers and we look forward to partnering with our camp families every summer.


At NSDC, a child’s emotional safety is as important as his or her physical safety. Every member of our staff undergoes an extensive training program to ensure that your child is being properly supervised while having the best summer possible

The Highest Standard of Professionalism

To promote the highest standard of professionalism, unlike any in its class, North Shore Day Camp adheres to a strict NO TIPPING POLICY for its staff.

Our Leadership Team is a highly trained and dedicated group of educators and camping professionals with exceptional experiences working with children. All prospective staff undergo a thorough interview process and background check.

Our unique evaluation process requires our Leadership Team to work closely with their counselors as they are responsible for delivering performance-based bonuses. These bonuses are given to counselors in lieu of tipping, which is strictly prohibited at North Shore Day Camp. Our staff salaries, among the highest in the industry, ensure a wide pool of quality applicants and keep our quality staff returning year after year.
