Counselors also assist special area teachers as needed and work closely with the children and co-counselors to learn and apply concepts throughout the day and the week in a fun and engaging manner. Our caring and compassionate counselors are with their group of children all throughout the day and become an important mentor and leader for our eager and happy campers!
