Being a member of our Summer Camp Staff is both exciting and, at times, exhausting. There are a wide variety of experiences during the camping season. 

We work with youth from ages 6 to 17. We enhance our skills of leaderships, team work, organization and time management.  We have the opportunity to share the best of ourselves as we provide a safe, inclusive and fun summer camp.
