Our Camp Staff


Camp staff are carefully selected for their enthusiasm, caring attitude toward children, and ability to interact with youth in an outdoor setting. All undergo background checks and participate in a pre-camp training that includes first aid, CPR certification, and COVID-19 safety protocols.

Senior Counselors are college age or older, most studying or specializing in the fields of science or education. Wachusett Meadow Naturalists and specialty instructors bring expertise to specific camps. This specialized team works to create a safe atmosphere for all campers.
