How to choose which camp is right for you
Our two camps are unique and offer a different selection of programs, sites and schedules. Programs are designed around a certain theme in which girls pre-register. Groups called units, range in size from 8-20 with 2-4 counselors working with each unit. Each week counselors will have an opportunity to choose which theme and age group they would like to work with. Programs tend to run Sunday-Friday with special weekend events throughout the summer.
Look at each camp/job description and what skills or experiences you may already have or want to learn and also keep in mind the start and end dates and your summer availability. You can always contact the Camp Director if you have questions or need further assistance.
