Did you know River Valleys works with an international agency to find qualified, energetic counselors and camp staff from all over Minnesota, Wisconsin, the United States and the world? When you come to camp, you might have a counselor from England, Hungary, Norway or another country. Many camp staff return year after year because they love camp!
River Valleys office staff experienced camp first-hand at Staff Discovery Days held at Camp Lakamaga in July and August. It was a chance for office staff to see all the great things that Girl Scouts do at camp, and to meet and talk with many camp staff including counselors, camp directors and program specialists.
All camp staff members have camp names like Flipper, Smiley, Tarzan or Ariel, and throughout the summer campers have fun trying to figure out what their real names are. River Valleys office staff enjoyed seeing how much the girls adored their counselors and the level of energy and enthusiasm portrayed by camp staff.
