Camp Staff

Our staff is primarily college students, graduates, faculty and former Birch Hill campers. Together we are a diverse group of mature, dignified role models coming from both the United States and abroad. Despite our different backgrounds, as camp counselors and staff there is a common thread that connects us all and brings us together in this magical place that we feel is our home away from home.  We love teaching and having fun while maintaining a safe environment that facilitates growth for our campers. 

At the beginning of each summer our counselors attend a week-long, comprehensive training course that speaks our values as an organization.  Because our staff are hired based on competency in an activity area, this orientation is focused on addressing overarching concepts around making sure each and every camper feels comfortable and at home here at Birch Hill.  We strive to hire staff members who have a cheerful disposition and embody the Birch Hill spirit.  We bring you the best people for the job.
