Group heads embody our philosophy and are constantly encouraging and coaching campers to succeed. All group heads have prior experience working with children and many are certified educators.
Assistant counselors are expected to provide support for their supervising group head counselors at all times. In addition, assistants should bring a high-energy level to all activities, actively encouraging and participating when appropriate.
