Cabin counselors must have at least two years of college and are
selected each summer for their experience and interest in working with
children as well as for their skill in outdoor activities. Many return
to camp for several summers, and all attend a week-long training prior
to the arrival of campers.
Ridge Leaders are older staff members who have much
camp experience. They lead trips taken off the ranch and help with many other programs.
Each camp has two nurses and a health center. Working with doctors in Woodland Park and Colorado Springs, nurses provide excellent medical attention.
Each camp has four wranglers who work with the horseback riding program. They have lots of experience with horses and love teaching campers how to ride.
Assistant Counselors are staff members who are entering their sophomore year in college. In addition to helping out with the program and trips, A.C.s set the tables, wash the dishes and help keep everything running smoothly in the lodge.
