Mid June – August 14th
- Each group of campers is led by 2 – 4 Group Counselors who fill the role as mentor, coach, older sibling and teacher. Much of campers’ summer success lies with the relationship they develop with their group counselor. Counselors spend the day working with their campers and participating in all activities with them. We look for applicants who have patience, compassion, great listening and communication skills, spirit and the ability to relate to children.
- Specialty positions include athletics, swim, adventure, creative and performing arts areas. The role of a specialist is to provide instruction to campers in their specific area of expertise with the assistance of the Group Counselors. Some of these positions require extra training (which we provide). Swim staff must have current swim certifications.

We follow a team approach and all work together to ensure the highest quality program and camp experience.
