Directors and Staff

Our staff forms the backbone of our program. These hardworking people include a combination of educators, outdoor instructors, and college students. We take great care in choosing our staff and select our leaders from a large pool of applicants based on maturity, judgment, experience, and related program skills. Our leaders are a dedicated group of caring adults who have a clear understanding of young people and are sensitive to their needs and interests. They choose to be a part of our program because of their enthusiasm to work with young people and a desire to share gifts and talents in a safe, fun-filled atmosphere. All staff participate in an intensive training session each season and are committed to your child’s safety and well-being.
