The Camp Directors are each in charge of specific facets: programming, educational supervision, catering and administration. The Head Counselors are each responsible for one of the four age sections.
The program section comprises of some 120 counselors, sports instructors and language teachers. Staff members are carefully chosen on the basis of their age, education, experience, maturity and ability to work with children.
Four resident nurses and an on-call physician are responsible for the health of campers and staff. A dietician supervises the preparation of excellent French-style food with an international flavour. Special diets for children with food allergies can be catered for upon request.
