Our camp counselors and staff are committed to creating a supportive and nurturing environment for the girls who attend Camp Evelyn or Camp Manitou. Although many are studying or working in fields such as education, psychology, sociology, recreation, social work, and more, they are chosen primarily for their keen interest and ability to work with children in a camp setting.
To prepare for the summer, staff go through background checks, an interview process, and take part in an intensive 12-day pre-camp training period that covers various topics that include, but are not limited to, emergency procedures, CPR/First Aid/AED/Lifeguarding, waterfront safety, homesickness, and more.
Below are a few camp staff that cannot wait to see you this summer!
