Activity Team members partner with staff to help to facilitate all activities in their assigned areas. From archery to arts & crafts, these team members keep camp running. Activity counselors also have the important job of ensuring each camper has the support they need throughout activities and helps to create a safe and fun environment for everyone!  

Cabin counselors are responsible for the direct supervision of children in a cabin group partnering with seasonal staff. Counselors provide basic behavioral and psycho-social support to campers, program daily cabin activities, and support unit leaders in the execution of unit programming.

Family Pals are responsible for helping to implement camp programs as well as engaging and supporting camper families. Family Pals are generalists who play many different roles throughout the weekend… including welcoming them “home to camp” and helping the families to get situated and acquainted with their surroundings. Family Pals at different times supervise groups of campers, lead activities and work behind the scenes to help us keep camp on the go.

Kitchen Volunteers support the Chef with food prep, meal setup, dishwashing, and general cleanup to keep everyone fueled for fun!
