Counselors/Junior Counselors

Each group is comprised of one counselor who brings her expertise as an educator during the school year with a degree in early childhood or a related field. Each counselor is teamed up with capable junior counselors who have a love for children and experience working with them. Many of our counselors have been with us for years. In addition, some of our groups are led by two co-counselors who work together to ensure your child has a wonderful summer. All of our counselors and junior counselors are warm and filled with enthusiasm and energy. They care for their campers and make sure each camper is having fun and making friends! Our staff is an experienced team, who truly care about the safety, growth, and happiness of each camper.
