Staff & Directors

“We consider our staff to be the most important ingredient to creating a safe and wonderful summertime experience for our campers. We select our staff with the utmost care.”

Who do we look for?

We look for persons who have integrity and Godly commitment, as well as a sense of humor and a love for children. Their skills must match the tasks at hand both in their activities and in their cabins. Many of our staff return year after year and all are given additional training in pre-camp orientations and activity clinics. Our counselors are given time to become familiar with your child and his or her special needs and gifts. We maintain at least a four to one ratio of campers to staff in order to ensure that each child receives the special attention that he or she deserves. Our staff is like a family. They are a close knit team of good friends with a common cause–to provide the most wholesome and fun summer possible for our entire camp.


Heading our team are the owners and directors, David and Anne Trufant. Bringing many years of experience in youth ministry, outdoor leadership and education, they are devoted to making the Kahdalea and Chosatonga Spirit come to life for each child.
