Camp counselors will be University of Arizona students recruited primarily from the College of Science, the College of Education, and from local school teachers. Programs range from 14 maximum students in the kindergarten program to 28 for the 1st/2nd, 24 for 3rd/4th grades, and 24 campers in the 5th-7th age group. Camps will be led by two counselors who will often be assisted by volunteers. Counselors will go through extensive training prior to the start of camp including CPR/First Aid as well as training on curriculum for each week.
The Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium will be the main host site for UA Fusion camps, and all campers will check in and out there, regardless of where their daily adventure takes them. The science center has been running programs for kids since 1975 and is well versed in all things kid fun and kid safe. A variety of support staff will assist in camp activities like before and after camp care, check ins and outs, and more. All employees that work with children at the science center are CPR/First Aid trained, have fingerprint clearance cards, and background checks.
