Overnights are one of the most memorable moments of the camp experience.
During staff training our counselors learn all about the technical skills that make overnight camping trips fun and successful. We teach and perfect the art of fire building, shelter building, and learn all about the 7 Leave No Trace Principles:
- Plan ahead and prepare
- Travel and camp on durable surfaces
- Dispose of waste properly
- Leave what you find
- Minimize campfire impacts
- Respect wildlife
- Be considerate of other visitors
As a Leave No Trace Master Educator, I feel very confident that our staff are set up for success. Here are two photos of different groups enjoying fireside chats as they digest their pita pizzas and s’mores.
