Our Gifted Staff

is made up of local people who have talents and passions they love sharing with our campers. Whether it’s a ranger from the park, a gardener sharing her garden, a naturalist joining a hike, a marine biologist at the tide pools, bird specialists at the PRBO field station, a visiting artist, or an expert trip guide, our staff and instructors are accomplished and very kid friendly.

Our counselors

are a hand-picked group of bright local youth. Most have been campers for many years before. All are dedicated to keeping their campers safe and happy during their days in camp, and share training in first aid and CPR, group dynamics, and games, games, games, before camp starts.
