Camp counselors and staff are chosen from students and graduates of colleges and universities in the United States, and from around the world. We seek young adults ages 19 to 26 who are caring and loving people with character, maturity, and a sincere interest in making our world a better and more peaceful place for everyone.

Most importantly, we look for staff members who have the judgment and the maturity to ensure that all of our campers are emotionally and physically safe during their time at Friends Camp. We look for counselors who have a sincere desire to work and live in community with children.

Our camper-to-counselor ratio is 4 to 1 with our young campers and 5 to 1 with our teenage campers.

 Support Staff

Support staff during the summer months at Friends Camp include a cook and cooks’ assistants, a part-time nurse, a maintenance director, a waterfront director, an assistant director, and a lead counselor. These staff usually have the experience of several years working at Friends Camp and are selected for their good judgment, skills in their area, leadership ability, compassion, and communication skills.
