At Eagle’s Landing we focus on keeping our groups small in combination with a mature staff. Children in pre-kindergarten through second grade have a 1:5 counselor to camper ratio and are in groups no larger than 10. As children grow older the groups remain small with a 1:6 supervision ratio. Campers are grouped based on gender and the grade they are entering in the fall. While Counselors In Training (CITs) are working with most groups, they are not counted in our supervision ratios.
