Mohawk’s reputation has been built by the exceptional team of Administrators, Head Counselors, General Counselors and Activity Specialists who return to us year after year. We create layers of adult supervision with a staff that includes more than 100 teaching professionals who are selected for their mature judgment, playful spirit and commitment to our mission of child development.
The experienced educators who lead every camp group and specialty area are supported by a hand-selected group of exceptional counselors, many of whom were Mohawk campers themselves! Predominantly college students, Mohawk’s counselors are carefully screened and chosen for their warmth, enthusiasm, experience with children and demonstrated responsibility.
Mohawk counselors understand their important role as mentors. They gently encourage campers to explore and try, and they help children to learn to solve problems and overcome obstacles. Our counselors are trained to identify and meet the needs of individual children, as well as to develop spirited and cohesive groups. And at Mohawk, staff training does not end at Orientation. Head Counselors, Activity Specialists, and Directors mentor our staff daily.
