Our Camp Educators

Our staff is passionate about sharing the joy and excitement of the outdoors with children. Sessions are staffed by Lead Educators who are mostly college graduates with proven camp leadership experience, and by Assistant Educators who are at least 17 years old and have experience supervising children. All undergo a rigorous interview process that includes reference and background checks and receive training in safety, child development, and nature study.
