Our counselors are either school teachers or college students working toward a degree in recreation or education. All Decoma staff members participate in an extensive two-week orientation program before the first day of camp. We know that Decoma's most important resource is our staff. Our counselors, activity specialists, and support team are what make camp so special – a place where children can expand their horizons, practice growing up, and have the time of their lives.
