We are a rustic camp owned and operated by the Episcopal Church. We are also decentralized. That really just means there are two main things that make us different than other camps.
1. Family Groups. Our campers are assigned to a unit with 2 Counseling Staff (whose only job is be with and lead them). Children in the same unit are within one grade of each other. The group lives together, eats their meals together, and travels to all their activities together. We believe that this model helps create real community. (The only time a camper might not be with their unit is at Free Time. For roughly one hour after dinner each day campers decide for themselves what they'd like to do most.)
2. We are Liberal Arts-esque. Every camper gets the opportunity to try activities in every area of camp.
STAFF TIME OFF
Counselors get some time away from campers daily and alternate having evenings off duty (but on the camp property). We have one-day breaks after one-week sessions, a two-day break after two-week sessions, and an additional evening off-property during our two-week sessions. Please see the staff contract calendar on our website.
We're seeking staff who like working with children and enjoy being outdoors. We are a Christian camp but we put a much greater emphasis on living in community than converting anyone: We try to practice respect, kindness, apologizing, forgiveness, and agreeing to disagree but still work together.
