The most important aspect of any camp is the quality of its staff. At Camp Herrlich we pride ourselves on our long-standing tradition of hiring caring, competent, and experienced individuals, many of whom return year after year. Our staff is carefully selected from around the world and around the corner based on skills, maturity, ethical values and the ability to provide a positive experience for all the children we service.

We go to great lengths to find those persons who will be positive role models, will be true to the Camp Herrlich mission and uphold our philosophies, and will enrich the lives of the campers the most. Campers will remember their "favorite" counselor for the rest of their lives.
