Life at Hidden Valley
All counselors live in a cabin with 2-3 other counselors and 10-15 campers. Cabin life focuses on creating a community with a diverse group of campers, fostering individual growth, and maintaining a supportive and enlivening cabin "family." Counselors also teach 4 periods each day in a variety of program areas. Details of program areas and responsibilities are available by reviewing all of the specific job opportunities at Hidden Valley.
