  • COUNSELLORS:
Current college players are employed as counselors. They serve as assistant coaches as we believe they are excellent role-models & demonstrators for our campers. Numerous colleges have been represented through the years but with the majority attending NESCAC, Ivy or Boston-area schools. On occasion, we will take a HS Senior or Junior as a CIT on some of our sites.
