The Best Part about Butler Camp: Our Staff!
At Butler Camp, our staff is one of the chief reasons for our excellent reputation in the community. The popularity of our camp and large number of returning campers each summer can be attributed to the care given to each child by our experienced, well-trained staff.
Our Camp Counselors are energetic, attentive, fun people who are well-loved by both campers and parents. Many of our counselors have been with us for multiple seasons, have been campers themselves, or are referred by our Butler Montessori school community. This fosters a rich sense of connection which provides a caring, responsive, and attentive camp community.
Counselors are required to complete fingerprint and background checks with the State of Maryland, Montgomery County and the FBI. Each year the staff participates in several training sessions to prepare them for their important job of working with children, as well as maintaining a safe environment for the campers.
All Directors, Head Counselors, and Instructors are CPR/First Aid certified. Instructors are also certified through specific training courses in their area of interest or specialty (Archery, Canoeing, Caving, Equestrian, Life Guarding, Mountain Biking, Ropes Course, Rock Climbing and Soccer).
Many staff members are teachers or education majors in college. Our two camp Directors are seasoned child and youth development professionals who together bring thirty-three years of experience in the educational, enrichment, non-profit, and expertise to Butler Camp.
Each camp session is also monitored by our staff Supervisory Nurse, Rachel Dietrich. Bus transportation is staffed by CDL-licensed drivers and camp counselors who ride on the bus to supervise children.
Our goal is to give each child the fun and caring support needed to have a wonderful, memorable experience at Butler Camp. It’s our dedicated and well-trained staff and Counselors that make this possible.
