We are looking for people who are high energy, LOVE working with kids and have very high standards for themselves. The staff are carefully selected and highly trained so they can fully support the campers and teach them effectively. We have an excellent staff to camper ratio so that we can sufficiently help campers navigate their way through the day and closely assist them in fostering friendships with their peers.

There’s no question that there is a direct correlation between the quality of our staff and the quality of the experience for the campers. It’s imperative that we hire the best people we can. We conduct an intensive staff orientation and continue to train the staff vigorously throughout the camp season by incorporating staff evaluations and weekly staff meetings. Staff have an opportunity to earn college credit for working with us.


“I learned a tremendous amount working for Mary when I was an undergraduate attending the University of Pennsylvania. As a father and a doctor, I cannot imagine my children being in better care for the summer!”

The Dream BIG Group Leaders were AWESOME!  They helped bake for our summer camp, organize our onsite room and weed out our food pantry for expired goods. It looks gorgeous!

As I prepare to move away from Colorado in a few days, I wanted to take a few minutes and thank people who’ve made a big impact on my time here. While I only worked at DBDC for one summer, I learned so much about myself as a leader, as part of a larger community, and more. I will never forget the memories I made. If I’m raising children in Colorado down the road I will certainly send them to Dream Big and even if I’m not, I look forward to adding the camp experience to their lives. Thank you for everything, I wish you and DBDC the best!

With gratitude,
Ian Solow-Niederman
