Specialists and Counselors in Training (Entering 12th Grade)
Specialists and Counselors in Training (SCTs) engage in a four-week training program to help them develop into great specialists and camp counselors. SCTs are involved in hands-on training by living in cabins with two staff members and campers, participating in unit evening programs and cabin meals, working one period a day with the cabin and one period a day in an activity area. In addition, SCTs have one training period a day and a small group mentoring experience with a member of the administration.
Specialists (High school graduate and older)
Specialists spend the majority of their day in one of our many activity areas around camp. These staff members provide skill-based learning specific to the activity and age group. From swim instructors to ropes-course facilitators to theatre specialists, staff with skills to share and teach our campers fill out the ranks of the specialists. Specialists are also attached to a cabin group and participate fully in the life of the campers.
Counselors (High school graduate and older)
Counselors move through the camp day along with their cabin group and enjoy the same activities as the campers. They provide individualized support to the campers in their care and help those children develop healthy social skills. Our counselors’ enthusiasm for being at camp and knack for creating special moments for their cabin makes camp the memorable experience it is.
