Our Staff

Counselors are chosen for two major reasons.  First, they genuinely enjoy working with children. Second, they want to share their appreciation of nature with children through wildlife experiences and nature excursions.

  • All counselors go through a vigorous pre-camp training session to ensure all campers have a fun and safe experience during their stay.
  • Camp counselors are high school graduates with one or more years of college experience.
  • All staff members are First Aid and CPR certified and undergo background checks and drug screenings before hire.
