The Camp of Dreams explicitly strives in its hiring and board selection practices to assemble ethnically and socio-economically diverse leadership teams. The Camp of Dreams staff brings a range of qualifications and perspectives to its programs: the summer staff includes a diverse mix of teachers, artists, professionals and college students, and the school-year staff adds university and high school student volunteers to this combination.
