Just kidding, I will be at camp not running camp.
We will update you shortly.
Camp Tall Timbers has a 4 -1 ratio of campers to staff.
Each summer much our staff is made up of returning employees or former campers who are now in college.
The entire team at Camp Tall Timbers is a wonderful mix of teachers, coaches and college students. Each staff member is carefully selected for their teaching expertise in a given activity area, their personality, as well as their interest in working with children.
All staff members report to camp several days ahead of our campers so that they may go through our Counselor Institute. At Counselor Institute we thoroughly review daily responsibilities, situations that may arise, expectations for staff conduct and emergency procedures. Additionally, by the time our campers arrive, our staff has reviewed all the information about their individually assigned campers as provided by their parents. This is one more way we strive to ensure a safe, fun and personalized camp experience.
My name is Matthew Sapienza. I’m 30 years old and I’m from Bowie, Maryland. I am working on finishing a degree in elementary education from Bowie State. Starting in the fall of 2020, I will be working as a teacher full time. In my free time, I love to travel across the country, play football and basketball, and work with students of all ages to help them grow as learners. I grew up going to summer camps during my childhood and I think it’s a great chance for children to make new friends and giving them a fun experience they can’t get anywhere else.
