ANYTOWN STAFF

Anytown’s staff are dedicated volunteers that are committed to building communities of peace. Each staff member undergoes an extensive background check and participates in intensive training before attending Anytown. 

 

DIRECTORS are experienced professionals, carefully selected for their judgement, maturity and skill in communicating human relation topics. Directors prepare other staff members for their roles in the Anytown experience. All activities are planned, approved and supervised by the Directors. 

 

ADVISORS provide insight into the world beyond high school. They offer delegates the wisdom of experience. Advisors spend a week away from their careers as teachers, parents, clergy, nurses, business people, law officers and professionals in other fields to join the Anytown staff. 

 

COUNSELORS are college and high school aged volunteers who are selected by the Directors. Each counselor is chosen by their participation in the Anytown follow-up program, Community Gatherings, and their involvement in making change in their own community.

 

MEDICAL STAFF may include registered nurses/medical professionals to ensure the safety of our community while at camp.  Key staff members will have updated CPR certifications. 

 

MENTAL HEALTH STAFF may include certified mental health professionals, or staff may be trauma-informed, to ensure the emotional and mental stability of our community.

ICCJ Camp Anytown COVID-19 Policy
 

Camp Anytown provides an interactive experience where delegates and staff will be in close proximity sharing community spaces. For the health and well-being of our community, the Inclusion Center for Community and Justice will require all participants (staff and delegates) to be fully vaccinated prior to attending Camp Anytown. Vaccinations must be completed at least 14 days prior to attendance. Partial vaccinations will not be admitted to camp. Exempt individuals may include those with medical conditions or religious/faith beliefs that limit vaccinations. We will also require a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of camp for all participants. We thank you for your understanding as we navigate the safest and healthiest ways to produce a fun and quality residential leadership experience. Due to the logistic nature of programming and residential cabin lodging, we will require the following from all staff and delegates to ensure the health and well-being of our community:

 

1) Negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the beginning of Camp Anytown (Nov 11)

2) Wearing masks during large and small group programming

3) Sanitizing hands when entering and leaving community spaces

4) Notifying a director if you or someone at camp has symptoms associated with COVID-19

Schedule your COVID-19 test so that your results are available between November 8-11, 2021. Proof of negative test will be required prior to attendance. If you test positive, please contact us.

The Inclusion Center for Community and Justice will work to keep all campers safe during their Camp Anytown experience. We will have hand sanitizer, masks, and practice social distancing when able. There are interactive components to our programming that may place our staff and delegates within close proximity of each other. During these activities, we ask all participants to wear a mask.
