Our Staff

It takes us 6 months of sorting through counselor applicants to accept the best of the best. These senior counselors, ranging from Ivy League graduates to local teachers, are also accompanied by junior and assistant counselor with ample knowledge of the outdoors and the Aspen area. With this superstar camp team, we strive to maintain a camper to staff ratio that does not exceed 5:1 in all activities. We take great pride in our staff team and hope you have an opportunity to interact with, learn from, and have fun with all of them this summer!
