About Our Staff

All of our counselors are matriculating San Francisco State Students. They derive from varying areas and study an array of topics offered by the University. Diversity amongst counselors guarantees an innovative, well-rounded program for campers.

Counselors are set-up for success because they are required to participate in 40 hours of intensive program training. During the training process, counselors will be discussing all the aspects of camp, including, but limited to: safety, risk managements, activity programming, and how to use our Wellness Facility to its fullest potential. Our entire staff are CPR, First Aid, and AED certified. Beginning in Summer 2020, staff will also be required to have a Food Serve Certification.
