About our Staff

We actively seek resident camp staff members who have the highest respect for all people as individuals, who desire to spend time with children, who are committed to meeting each camper's needs, and who are willing to put those needs above their own. Our staff members represent a variety of age groups; the typical age range is 18-30 years. Staff members are from all over the United States and different countries as well. Using Camp Counselors USA, an international placement agency, we hire staff from Asia, Europe, Africa, South America and Australia. All international staff must have a permit to work in the United States.
