Assisting the professional artists are talented, knowledgeable counselors who oversee dorm life. Counselors are trained to promote unity, responsibility, and safety within the dorms while fostering individuality and self-esteem. From our registered nurses, to the swimming instructors, the rest of our staff is equally expert at providing a safe and comfortable camp environment. While the day has structure, there is plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors, sit quietly and write music, or go find a teacher to help master that dance step or musical instrument.
