Senior Camper Fun! As our campers continue to grow, our programming is also expanding and our high school program is built to prepare our campers for life after high school (and potentially becoming a Lonehollow Guide). Each year, campers enjoy more and more privileges based on their division and campers of all ages look forward to becoming a Lead Climber and going on the yearly overnight trip. Lead Climbers are our oldest campers and in addition to regular camp programming, they enjoy a Lead…

Meet Sue Sue…   I am a fun loving grandmother who…

Age Divisions at Camp: How is my camper’s experience customized to their age group?

  As we’re gearing up for summer and putting together our staff training manuals, we wanted to share our approach to campers of all ages and how we specialize our programming to best fit each age group.

This gives campers the opportunity to form strong bonds with…

In the fall I’ll be teaching PE overseas on the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. I choose to be a counselor because I love working with kids, and it keeps me from growing up myself!   Personal Interests: Any sport, outdoor or indoor….
