The camp counselors are highly qualified adults. They enjoy working with children, being outdoors and staying active. Most are certified teachers (BS/MS degrees) with years of experience working with children. Others have years of experience as camp counselors or environmental educators. Each must go through an interview process including verification of their references and an orientation program. In addition, all names and addresses are submitted to the County Health Department.
Each counselor is equipped with a walkie-talkie so they can stay in touch with all the other counselors and the main office at all times. Each counselor is supplied with a small first-aid kit.
Each counselor works with a group of no more than 11 children similar in age and physical abilities. When possible, one or more Teen Volunteers are assigned to a group. TVs are former campers running in age from 14-17 who volunteer to help counselors.
