Placing children first means having a first-class team and our team is the very best in the business. More important than our Monroe location, or any facility on our campus, is the nurturing, spirited staff, excited to teach campers the many Rosmarins traditions, and have fun!

Rosmarins’ dedicated, talented staff is the heart of camp, committed to helping campers learn, grow and have more fun than they ever imagined possible! Campers build confidence and skills in a healthy, safe, nurturing, and energizing setting. Our extremely low camper-to-staff ratios ensure individualized attention and support.

The entire staff receive extensive pre-camp training in safety, child-development, and camp procedures, and participates in performance evaluations and a merit based incentive program throughout the summer.

A full-time Camp Nurse is on site at all times.
