Spiritual Directors
Spiritual Directors are typically pastors. During each week of camp, a Spiritual Director helps plan and lead daily chapel sessions, work with the volunteers who are Spiritual Leaders to ensure a consistent message is being given to all campers, and provide spiritual guidance to campers, staff, and volunteers throughout the week. Spiritual Directors receive sleeping accommodations in Middle Cabin and are invited to bring their spouses along.

Spiritual Leaders
Spiritual Leaders plan and lead spiritual formation sessions held each day during camp. They also help plan and lead chapel sessions when it is their cabin’s turn. They live in the cabins with the campers and core counselors throughout the week of camp, participating fully in the daily schedule.

Specialty Leaders
Specialty Leaders are assigned a camp to which they bring an expertise or passion (i.e. astronomy, nature, photography, etc.). They plan and lead daily sessions, specific to the specialty camp they are with. The goal of these camps is for campers to walk away with a new skill. They live in the cabins with the campers and core counselors throughout the week of camp, participating fully in the daily schedule.
