Our Counselors

Our philosophy is that staff is the key to a successful camp experience. Our overall staff to camper ratio is 1:4. Our cabin ratios for staff to campers are the following:

  • 5 years & younger – 1:5
  • 6-8 years – 1:6
  • 9-14 years – 1:8
  • 15-18 years – 1:10

Our staff exudes positive energy and excitement. Every one of our 130 staff goes through a detailed interview and background check process; their attitude determines whether they will ultimately be part of the Tockwogh team. Effective staff training is essential. Training covers everything from CPR/First Aid, lifeguarding, horseback riding, and boat driving to working with campers who miss home, strategizing to create bonds within the cabin and modeling good behavior.
