Empowering Staff to Create the Culture Your Camp Craves


Millennials & Gen Z want transparency, collaboration, work-life balance and leadership opportunities.  You will be given the opportunity to consider ways to recruit, hire and invest the time and energy required to give the best, and in turn received the best out of your staff, while keeping the needs of potential staff and camp at the forefront. Staff who are thoughtful, engaged and invested in the entire camp culture provide campers with an environment in which to thrive and grow.
