Summer Camp Counselors & Staff
Camp Directors recruit and screen mature, qualified staff who have a desire to share their enthusiasm for camping, the outdoors, and arts. We also hire staff from other countries to give your camper the chance to broaden her understanding of other cultures. All camp staff participate in an intensive pre-camp training which includes program, first aid, CPR, camping, human relations skills and drug-testing. Specially qualified staffers direct the water activities, archery, challenge course, rock climbing and horseback riding areas.
Most of the camp staff are college students studying education, sociology and outdoor recreation – among many others. All staff must be 18 or older.
