Camp staff completes: application, three references, interview, background check, and a drug test.

Unit staff includes counselors 18 years of age and up, with at least one counselor 21 years of age. Junior counselors, ages 16 and 17, may also assist.

The majority of our staff are college students or college graduates who have experience working with children.

Camp staff attend a week-long training prior to camp. Staff are certified in First Aid and CPR, and are trained in child care and specific job responsibilities.

Specialty staff are trained in their area of expertise.  

“Thank you for providing a camp that helps build my daughter's self-esteem, confidence and challenges her. Also, thank you for finding delightful young ladies to work as counselors that model appropriate behavior my daughter can strive to emulate. We will definitely be returning to camp Kateri next year.” –Parent of a 2013 Camper
