Each counselor lives in the cabin with their assigned campers for their entire stay at camp. Counselors walk through the program with their campers, attending to them during games, crafts, meal times, free time, and chapel. Counselors are fully trained and equipped to care for their campers during our staff training. Counselors are certified in CPR & First Aid.

Co-Counselors assist Counselors in their duties but do not assume full care of campers at any time.


Our spring fed lake provides a time of fun relaxation for our campers. Campers may choose to wade in the shallow end of the lake, take a paddle boat out for a ride, or pass the swim test to swim in the deeper end of the lake. The lifeguard is the authority at the waterfront and is responsible for waterfront safety.
