Our selective hiring practices, honed for 23 years, yield the most talented, passionate recruits from tech companies, and universities like CMU, Stanford, Caltech, and NYU.

All adults, no CITs, and thorough background checks
We adhere to a policy of no “Counselors in Training.” Instead, you’ll find fun-loving, well-paid, all-adult instructors. We take safety seriously. All staff members undergo extensive background and reference checks. 

Trained in person
