Our skilled counselors are mostly college-aged people who share a love of the outdoors and a deep enjoyment in working with children. The Administrative Staff is comprised of experienced and professional adults that are eager to share their knowledge, as well as individuals that worked as counselors and want to take on more responsibility. Our staff members are diverse in personal interests and backgrounds, which reflects the diverse culture of our camp community.
Camp Dark Waters is proud of it’s 4:1 camper-to-counselor ratio and overall 3:1 camper-to-staff ratio. Much like a family, our full-time staff, the Administrative Staff, and the team of counselors interact closely with all of the campers on a personal level.
The health and safety of each camper, day and night, is the prime responsibility of every staff member. Medically trained staff monitor the health of each camper and a doctor is on call 24 hours a day.
