Meet the Staff

Our Camp is building an amazing team with an 8-1 camper to counselor ratio, and multiple staff on the leadership team. Camp Leadership and Counselor team will be updated regularly. With an outpouring of counselor applications we want to give our counselors many opportunities to interview. We have had 20+ applications for just the regular counselor position, so the more enrollments we get, the more staff we can hire! Our future staff go through an extensive interview process, background checks, child safety training, and much more! We are selecting the best staff in Montgomery County for our inaugural camp season.
