The number one responsibility of Boston Explorers counselors is to develop strong, positive relationships with campers.

Our counselors are young adults who help plan and lead the activities and excursions, teach campers skills and serve as role models. With one counselor for every six kids, campers get personal attention. Camp counselors go through a rigorous interviewing and screening process. They are selected on the basis of experience working with children, positive attitude, interest in the urban outdoors, friendliness and character. We look for a diverse group of counselors who have a strong work ethic, demonstrate leadership and maturity and truly enjoy the company of children.

"The counselors were cool, they enjoyed being around us and we were like family…that you learn new things, explore Boston and make new friends.”
