Counselors  (Family Group Leaders)

Family Group Leaders (FGLs) make up the majority of the Tekoa Foothills staff. They are paired up with another Family Group Leader each week and together they are in charge of facilitating weekly camp activities for their assigned group of 14 boy/girl campers. Family Group Leaders work with our Day Camp, Resident (over-night) Camp, Adventure Camp, and Special Needs Camps. Family Group Leaders live in the cabins with their assigned campers. Age group assignments rotate weekly.
