Meet our Counselors

One of the things that truly separates us from other camps is that most of our staff were former campers, many since they were six years old. We know them and they know camp. We know their families, their skill sets, and strengths. We have never had to use a hiring agency to hire staff. This longevity allows you to trust us with your children. We have a 3:1 staff/ camper ratio and 94% of our staff are over 19 yrs. old. As well, over 90% of our staff are CPR/ First Aid and Lifeguard certified
