Our Counselors


Each summer we hire up to twenty female counselors. The majority of our staff members are college students or recent graduates. Many of our counselors grew up here; starting first as campers, then as Counselors in Training (CITs), as Junior Counselors (JCs), and finally graduating to full time staff positions.

Whether they work as riding instructors, lifeguards, in Arts and Crafts, or as general activities counselors, all of our staff find their way here because they love to work with children as well as horses. They enjoy spending time getting to know each and every camper and horse so that SJ really does feel like a big family!


Our staff participate in pre-camp online training, a week-long camp orientation, and in-service sessions during camp. Our goar? To provide our staff with the tools and skills to do their jobs for your child and you.
