Included in this session you will Co-lead or possibly solo lead a 3-8 day wilderness trip in our scenic Northwoods neighborhood. While not on “Trail,” Counselors will support their campers during most of the daily events such as meals, group activities and times at the cabin. Counselors are expected to sleep in their cabins at night and be at all meals unless they are on time off, in which they will have one 12 and two 24 hour period off. During Staff Training, Counselors will learn about many ways to manage risk, have fun in our tight-knit community, and be a strong leader at camp and on “Trail”. Other responsibilities and tasks may be asked of our counselors during their employment which can be found in more detail on our website.
