It goes without saying that Camp counselors and staff are carefully selected to ensure a safe and enjoyable summer for campers. Only qualified college students and high school graduates who have a genuine love for, understanding of, and interest in young people are chosen.
Each summer we also hire several international staff members. These individuals contribute their unique culture to Camp and allow campers to broaden their view of the world.
Once they’ve been selected, Camp staff undergoes an intensive weeklong training event to orient to summer camp, and the unique characteristics of Camp Kanata.
Camp Kanata directors have more than 30 years combined experience in overnight camping and outdoor recreation management. They have spent many summers as campers and counselors at overnight camps across North Carolina.
