 Camp Groups

Can my child be
grouped with a friend?

In order for requests to be considered, BOTH campers must request each other at the time of registration.  Only one friend request is allowed.  Tribes/Groups are divided by age so that the activities can be tailored accordingly, so please be sure that the friends requesting one another are of similar age (by one year).  We strive to maintain a group size of between 15-17 and will not rearrange groups if this number is compromised.  We will try to accomodate all requests, however we cannot guarantee placement.  Only requests made prior to the first day of camp will be considered.

Counselors and Staff
Each group of 15 to 17 campers is supervised by one counselor, one counselor aide, and 2-3 CIT's (counselors-in-training).  Our counselors are college age students and our counselor aides are high school age.  All of our staff and volunteers attend a one week inservice training program to learn how to lead the various activities in a fun and safe manner.
