Camp Staff Ready to Go!

Opening day is almost here! Over the past week our seventy-five member staff have been working together to get our camp ready for the start of the 2014 season! This week has shown that our camps are led by a talented diverse group of staff members.

The staff has spent lots of time going over everyone’s roles in camp for the summer and how we can be the best at our jobs through various training modules and scenarios. We have been bonding as a staff as a whole, with our individual areas, and with our co-counselors through various acts of community building.

We have completed our training, the tents are set up, the programs are written, and we could not be more ready and excited for our campers to arrive! It has been a wonderful Staff Week and we cannot wait for our first session of campers to come and for the summer to get into full swing Sunday & Monday!

Put a Smile on a Scout’s Face…Help send him to summer camp!

In 2013, we awarded 59 youth camperships. The need is even greater this year.

Camp sparks curiosity, builds confidence, and introduces a whole new way of having fun. It allows kids to learn about and really connect with nature in a way that is difficult to accomplish in everyday life.

No Scout should miss out on the chance to go to summer camp. Especially due to financial hardship. That’s why we offer full and partial camperships (scholarships) – to make camp accessible to all.
