Upon their completion, participants will have had the opportunity to work closely with some of our Camp Counselors, Unit Supervisors, Specialists and Directors. In this role, participants will assist staff in leading a group of campers which includes directing activities such as sports, arts & crafts, swimming and archery.  Participants will be evaluated on a weekly basis.
