It’s no secret that the key to a successful summer rests in the hands of the staff.
Choosing the right staff is important because they are the gateway to making the summer unforgettable. The counselors at Heart O’ the Hills is a mixture of both domestic and international staff. The international staff at Heart O’ the Hills is available through cultural exchange programs sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Having a cultural diverse staff can expose campers to new languages, cultures and skills perspective.
Providing this unique experience to the American camp tradition has proven to be beneficial to campers. Domestic staff members also allow campers to become familiar with areas and traditions within the United States. The combination of cultural exchanges from both international and domestic will positively transform campers lives and bring new insight.
The bonds and cultural exchange lasts beyond the month campers are with staff members at The Heart.
With advancing technologies, campers are able to stay connected with domestic and international staff year round. The communication channels created by campers and counselors allows for further development of cultures to be exchanged.
