What Makes Camp Colman such a Transformative Place?
It’s the people who choose to spend their summer working with our campers! Colman staff are the heart of camp.
This summer more than 1500 campers will come to Camp Colman and form a community unlike any other - all guided by an amazing group of cabin counselors, village leaders, and support staff all dedicated to making the magic happen!
Just like our campers, our Colman staff come from all over the country and around the world. This summer we have staff joining us from Venezuela, Ireland, Scotland, Great Britain and Australia. For all of them, Camp Colman becomes a home away from home.
While some staff will be joining us at camp for the first time, many of our staff have been calling Colman their second home since they were campers themselves! Often these staff members are graduates of our Junior Leader, Counselor-in-Training, and Advanced Counselor-in-Training summer programs. From leading games to shadowing counselors, each year they took on more responsibilities and fine-tuned their skills in preparation to apply for a staff position.
While our staff team may have all have traveled different paths to Colman, there is one thing that unites them all: Their unwavering commitment to being a positive role model for youth. We believe a talented, passionate and diverse staff is the foundation of a camp experience, and we can’t wait for your camper to get to know our team this summer!
