2019 Counselors and Counselors in Training Wanted!

Thank you for your interest in working for the Park Ridge Day Camp! We are looking forward to a fun and challenging camp experience this year. For those applicants who are new to PRDC, we’d like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and share our excitement about the upcoming summer day camp program.

Park Ridge Day Camp Director, Leah Sinisi, is excited to be returning for her 4th summer. Leah is a classroom teacher for Tenafly Public Schools and holds state certifications for both teaching and educational administration. Renee Shultz, Assistant Director, is returning for her third summer. Renee previously worked as our head counselor and is a classroom teacher for Glen Rock Public Schools. We also welcome Leigh Ann Cusack, Assistant Director. Leigh Ann is a longtime classroom teacher for Tenafly Public Schools and is an experienced enrichment camp director. Finally, we are excited to introduce Alison Ciarletta, Head Counselor, to our team of administrators. Alison has been a camp counselor for five years and attended as a camper prior to working on our team. Together, they bring more than 40 years of experience in education and embrace the concepts of honesty, integrity, teamwork and sportsmanship. They strive to establish a safe and positive camp experience for each and every child.


It is our mission that all campers partake in activities that promote fitness and teamwork while keeping the days fun and enjoyable. In order to do this, we have made it a top priority to assemble a staff that shares this philosophy. We welcome the return of veteran staffers and encourage new applicants, as well. Applications are due to Borough Hall by 4:00 PM on Friday, April 26th, 2019.


Once all applications have been reviewed, both new and returning candidates may be contacted for an interview. This year, interviews will take place on Thursday, May 2nd and Thursday, May 9th (6:00 – 8:00 PM) . All requests for interviews are mandatory for job consideration. While every effort is made to notify applicants of employment status sooner rather than later, staff numbers are dependent on camp enrollment and may not be finalized until early June.
