One of the key factors that differentiate Brant Lake from other camps is that we have more mature counselors—who we call our “Key-Staff”, than any other camp that we’re aware of.
In addition to our five Directors, Rich, Bob, Karen, Dave and Andy, who have over 100 years of experience as Directors of BLC, we have more than 30 Key Staff members. These staff members represent the backbone of our Counselor Staff and provide the mature, daily leadership and oversight in every one of our Mini-Camps. This Key Staff group, who is mostly comprised of teachers and coaches, total close to 500 years of experience at Brant Lake Camp and are among the most favorite staff we have among the kids.
Having so many Key Staff allows us to accomplish well so many of the special things we do within our program and ensures the warmth, spirit, guidance, safety and healthy fun for which we are known.
