Camp Counselor Staff
Many of our camp counselors are high school and college age students, and for many this is their first job. While we do lots of training on youth development, they are not professionals. Our staff to camper ratio is 1:10 and the camp is not equipped to provide one-on-one staffing for campers. Please be respectful to our camp counselor staff, and if you have any concerns, you can reach out to the Recreation Director.
