Online Staff Training

We have mandatory trainings for ALL staff members. There will be two aspects of staff training. Prior to the Wednesday before your camp session you are required to watch the three videos and one Power Point below and respond to the post test surveys after viewing. If you’ve not taken the post tests, you will need to stay after at Sunday training to complete this requirement. In addition, the Tour of Camp Knutson is recommended for all new staff but it does not require a post test.

Fun Packing Lists

One of our main goals at camp is to provide a FUN experience for our campers. One of the ways we do this is through many silly activities, crazy meals, and goofy evening programs. Campers love to see their counselors, doctors and nurses dressed up and having a good time. Check out the silly packing list for your session and try to bring some special clothes for these events. Check the closet, visit your local thrift store, and hit the garage sales (don’t spend $$$$ – this is camp and things can get dirty…).
