Most counselors have completed a minimum of one year of college and have backgrounds in child care, education and/or natural science. Junior counselors are recent high school graduates who have experience working with children and are pursuing work in environmental studies. Each staff member is carefully interviewed and passes a nation-wide criminal background check. Our seven-day staff training includes experiential workshops, lessons from professionals, First Aid and CPR.
Camp Kingfisher is focused on kids. We are proud of our top-notch camp program; it’s a welcoming and nurturing environment where campers can have fun in the outdoors, discover their connection to nature, and build strong character.
