Cabin counselors are the soul of camp. They set the tone for how great a campers experience will be by facilitating friendships and adventures in an enthusiastic, compassionate manner. Cabin counselors live on site in cabins with campers and guide them through their whole camp stay. They will be with campers continually offering support during activities, mealtimes, and overnight. Counselors will assist campers, to whatever varying degree necessary, with the daily aspects of personal care (showering, changing, toileting, eating, dressing, transferring, etc.). Cabin counselors get to be a campers best friend as they navigate being away from home, making new friends, and trying new things.

Program counselors facilitate the fun. They will be cross trained in all activity areas from canoes, archery, challenge course, swimming/lifeguarding, fishing, arts and crafts, music, nature, and more. Program counselors guide campers through activities they never thought possible, making everything accessible for every single participant. We will teach you everything you need to know to lead fantastic programming, while also giving you a great deal of creative and leadership opportunities. Program counselors live onsite in cabins throughout the summer. They will assist with camper care on an as needed basis. Program counselors get to become great friends with campers as they lead them through new adventures.
