Most of our staff have grown up at Cooch, starting as campers, returning as leadership candidates and finally joining the staff team. With an annual return rate of approximately 90%, Cooch staff deliver a consistent program that emphasizes camp traditions and strong personal relationships built over the course of several years. Familiar with our community, and values, it is our internally developed staff team that makes us unique, and maintains our uniqueness year after year.
As minimum standard qualifications, all staff must be 18 years of age (17 if they have completed two years of the leadership program) and must hold current First Aid, CPR, and NLS (lifeguarding). At Cooch we boast of having the most child-focused counselors and instructors in camping, and are confident that your camper will notice the difference.
