Our staff is a carefully selected group of highly qualified individuals who are passionate about working with youth in a camp environment. Staff members are trained to assist in the development of self-confidence, cooperation, personal growth, and environmental awareness.

  • Challenge course facilitation
  • Environmental education
  • Group games

The emotional and physical well-being of our campers is our top priority.
