We are fully engaged in interviewing & hiring, enrolling & planning for our 47th summer. Despite the cold winter weather, summer feels right around the corner to us! As we continue to assemble our staff for this summer, I am constantly reminded of “The Sixth Degrees of Southampton.”  At SSDC we believe that we offer a place where campers are able to explore, grow, and develop into confident individuals.  We look forward to seeing the smiles on their faces, hearing their conversations and listening to the stories of their adventures with their camp families every summer.

  • 22 staff members have been here 15 or more years!
