Katia Martin was born and raised in West Branch, Michigan, where she spent summers camping with her family. She earned her Master's Degree from the University of Illinois in 2003. Afterwards, she went to work for the YMCA serving as a camp director for two different YMCA Camps in Pennsylvania. Katia, her husband Jason, and their children Aidan and Emmalee-Jo came to call Frost Valley home in 2011. They enjoy being a part of, and working with, the vibrant local community.
Day Camp Counselors
Our goal is to ensure successful camping and educational experiences for each child. Staff members travel from across the country and around the world to join Frost Valley’s team — from California to Maine, England to New Zealand. We maintain a proper staff-to-camper ratio dependent on age, and in-depth background and criminal history checks are diligently performed on all applicants. We believe that our counselors are what make Frost Valley’s day camp meaningful, and many are former campers who are very familiar with our camp culture and traditions. Counselors undergo extensive training in our policies and procedures which stress health and safety, first.
