Meet The Staff

We recognize that a key to a great camp experience is a great staff. We hire the best candidates from around the world and provide them with world-class training about camp and child development. You can see where they come from on this map. We’re also thrilled that so many of our former campers come back to serve as counselors. Those staff members with a gold star next to their name are former campers!
