Working at camp can be a rewarding, exciting, fun and life-changing experience! 

“I believe that above everything camp has taught me to be patient and to love others unconditionally. Camp is a place that I can put all my effort into others, knowing that there will still be people checking in with me. I learned about what qualities others see in me, as a friend, as a co-staff, or just in general as a leader which helps influence future career decisions for sure. In general, camp is a place I know I can be my true self and others will accept and love me. Ever since I started coming to this camp, I have wanted to be a cabin leader, working here this summer felt kind of like I was living a dream.” - Jenna R.
