I Want to be a Counselor!
Camp Names for Counselors and Staff!

We have a list of names below that you can use to choose your name. Just keep in mind that returning counselors and staff have first pick on their name if they have been known by the names before.

Once you are chosen and know what week you're going, you might want to get together with others attending your week and each of you choose a name from a group of related names.

Make sure you check out the alphabetical list at the bottom of this page that include many names that have been used in the past!
