In order to provide safe and professional programs our staff receives training at Backcountry Institute, held at Camp Carolina each spring. We offer courses by American Canoe Association, American Red Cross, National Archery Association, National Rifle Association and Wilderness Medical Association, to name a few.
We offer these courses for our staff, allowing us to have the most medically and professionally trained and certified camp counselors in the country!
Once they have completed training we begin our week of hands on orientation before the campers arrive.
Our orientation includes going through the staff manual, simulating days at camp, having a professional speaker talk to the staff about ways to deal with all different situations, going through camper profiles and many more group initiative games.
By the time the campers get here in early June, the staff are very excited and ready to go with the tools they need to be the best counselors possible.
