Our Campers

Our campers range in age from 2-15, and are grouped accordingly. We consider both their age and school grade to ensure age appropriate activities.

In addition to age/grade consideration, our campers select their specific camp program from 4 different options, based on their interests (Camp SAM, Camp GLAM, Camp SPIRIT, SAM Playcare).

Our camper groups adhere to a strict ratio of 1:10 (staff:campers) in Camp SAM, GLAM, & SPIRIT and 1:7 in Playcare. The groups consist of no more than 20 campers, with 2 counselors (14 campers in Playcare). Most camper groups are co-ed, with male or female counselors always available.
