Our Camp Staff

Camp staff members are chosen primarily for their ability to relate to and oversee youth in an outdoor setting. We hire enthusiastic, positive, and knowledgeable counselors who create an emotionally and physically safe atmosphere. All staff members undergo background checks, participate in pre-camp counselor training, and are first-aid and CPR certified.
