Almost all of our Staff were Camp Varsity Campers once upon a time...

Staff that have been campers themselves have a deep understanding of what being a camper is like and all the feelings that go along with it! This is particularly helpful especially with our new campers who may be experiencing summer camp for the very first time: our counselors know first hand all the excitement, questions, and even maybe some anxious feelings that may arise!

Camp Staff is made up of Directors, Senior Counselors, Junior Counselors, Counselors-In-Training, Kitchen Staff,  and    Office/Admin Staff. camp staff members wear many hats to make all the magic happen on the mountain!

Counselors are selected by our Staffing Director and Senior Staff members. Our Staff is a wonderfully diverse group who aside from being Camp Counselors also are: parents, educators, students, coaches, community volunteers, gardeners and farm workers, lifeguards, and food service and hospitality workers. Our selection process is unique in that it allows us to build a most supportive Staff that helps create an incredibly positive summer camp culture centered around authenticity, freedom for creativity and exploration, kindness, safety, and inclusion.

Counselors live in the cabins with campers; some counselors stay for 3 weeks and many stay for the entire summer. There are approximately 4-6 staff members per cabin, depending on the number of campers in the cabin. All Staff supervise campers under the leadership of the Camp Directors.

each year, ALL of our counselors have passed background checks. Before summer, Staff members go through CPR/First Aid Training and many of our Staff are certified lifeguards.
