Our assistant head counselors are 16-17 years old, our head counselors are ages 18 and older and our group leaders are ages 20 and older. Specialists lead programs such as yoga, dance, self-defense, drama, archery and more. Everyone is dedicated to the mission of our camps and look forward to creating unforgettable memories for children and their parents.
