All of the counselors and administrators at Camp Ponemah are carefully chosen for their leadership abilities, creativity, and enthusiasm for working with children as well as their kindness, understanding, and diverse personal talents with their campers.
All of our staff have gone through an extensive application and interview process which includes a reference and criminal background check.
Counselors are assigned to a specific age group for the entire summer, enabling them to develop a close bond with their campers. Our camper to staff ratio is 10 to 1 for 5 to 12 year olds. These ratios are even smaller during special instruction ( swimming, tennis, etc.)
Camp Ponemah creates a safe, fun-filled summer vacation with our experienced staff, clean facilities and low camper/staff ratios.
The staff members who run the swimming and tennis programs are certified and trained in their areas of expertise. All counselors are fully certified in First Aid.
