Led by a full time professional leadership team – our staff are our most valuable asset. Camp staff are mostly college-aged with interests in environmental studies, teaching and other disciplines.  We carefully select staff on the basis of good character, leadership, their ability to make sound decisions and provide campers with a meaningful and safe camp experience.  All staff undergo higher standard Caregiver Background Checks and reference checks before being hired. Staff then participate in an extensive training that emphasizes child development, leadership and the safety and welfare of our campers.  Did we mention our staff are fun, too?  Camper-to-staff ratio averages 8 to 1 or better and we have a maximum of 100 campers in our largest program, so campers receive a personalized program and do not get lost in the group.  Most staff are lifeguards and a certified First Responder is on site at all times.


Camp Glacier Hollow is owned and operated by the Stevens Point Area YMCA under the direction of highly qualified professional YMCA staff.
