Camp Staff members are trained in the following areas:  child development, communication, conflict resolution, risk management and safety, leadership, and program development.  We focus on the Girl Scout Leadership Development Model and incorporate that into training.

We are looking specifically for staff members who are already trained in Red Cross CPR/RTE, Lifeguard, Boating Safety, and Water Safety Instruction.   We will provide some of that training on a limited basis if necessary.  We are always interested in specialists with experience in backpacking/hiking, boating (canoe, kayak, sail), ropes courses, horse-riding, fine arts, and leadership development.
