leadership The counselors who instruct and care for our campers are one of the keys to Tanamakoon's success. They are responsible, energetic, fun-loving young adults who have been chosen not only for their leadership abilities but also for their sincere interest in young people. The vast majority of the staff are former Tanamakoon campers. The minimum age for counselors is 18 years; the average age is several years higher. The number of counselors is one to every three campers. In the younger age groups, our staff ratio is closer to one counselor for every two campers.

In addition to our female counseling staff and our doctor and nurse, we also employ canoe trip guides and maintenance staff. Staff members at Tanamakoon are hired for - their skill, warmth and conscientious concern for young people. Their highest priority is to provide a safe and secure environment for your daughter.
