Each summer, Agawam hosts approximately 130 campers from 25 states and 6 foreign countries, and employs a staff of 65. This talented staff includes 45 cabin and activity counselors who work with, play with, and live with 4 to 8 campers in screened cabins.
Our staff is mostly college-aged young men and women, and well over half are either former campers or have worked at Agawam before. About 10% join us from foreign countries, traveling from places like Australia, England, The Netherlands, Russia, Colombia and even Tanzania! Several school teachers are part of our supervisory and administrative staff, and we are all well taken care of by our Camp Nurse. There is a “counselor-in-training” program available for young men who are 16 and 17 years old.
