Let the Adventure Begin!
All camp personnel receive extensive training prior to the arrival of campers. Training includes age-appropriate activity programming, outdoor skills, songs & games, team building, child development, diversity, handling homesickness, positive behavior management, and more. In addition, camp personnel are trained in safety and emergency procedures. Our health, waterfront, and food staff are all certified or licensed in accordance with local, state, and federal agencies (American Camp Association, GSSN, and GSUSA).

2014 Host Families for Camp Staff
Would you like to host an international or long-distance American camp staff member in your home this summer? We’re looking for families to welcome camp staff in their homes for lengths of time ranging between a weekend and two weeks!
Families can host staff members before and after camp as well as during time off. As an approved host family, you will be asked to make contact with your camp staff members prior to arrival. This is your opportunity to tell them about your family and find out about them ahead of time. You may also ask them for a picture of themselves to make identifying them at the airport a bit easier. Your family will provide a safe and comfortable place for the staff to stay at your home. (A couch, air mattress, futon, or bed will be just fine.) Host families also prepare some meals for our camp staff members while they are at the home.
