Our Most Valuable Resource

Gwynn Valley’s staff make each summer a success.
We hire creative, fun, inspiring individuals who demonstrate a desire to work with younger children and who have strong character, leadership skills, and experience to teach in our program areas.

Our staff is made up of people from all over the world and these diverse cultures are an important part of Gwynn Valley. Countries such as Scotland, England, Ireland, France, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Brazil, Japan, India, Australia, and New Zealand have been represented at camp. In addition, we have staff from many states. All of the staff have completed at least their freshman year in college or are 19 and our overall camper-to-staff ratio is 3 to 1. Our medical team consists of two nurses and a physician each session.

“This has been one of the most amazing summers of my life! From the moment I arrived at Gwynn Valley I was awe-struck by the diversity of people around me. I considered myself lucky to be here. I’ve taken on a lifestyle, not a mere job – a lifestyle because it’s changed me, challenged me, and taught me how to grow. The best part is not only am I benefiting myself – I’m making a difference to the children.”Staff member
