Cabin Counselor

Our cabin counselors teach activities during the day as well as fostering a tight knit community in their cabin. In activities, our counselors teach children valuable lessons by showing campers a new skill, helping them gain more confidence in a familiar activity, and leading by example. Living in a cabin with 8-12 girls and another co-counselor is also an opportunity for you to be a role model, friend, and leader. Our campers are with us for two, three, or four weeks at a time, so you will get to know them quite well! Our days are busy and full of laughter, friendship, and fun.
