Summer Staff

Summer programming and noncom training and mentoring is lead by a small team of staff members, most of whom are former noncoms themselves.


At Camp Nathanael we call the young men that devote their summer to lead cabins and participate on dish and ground crew Noncoms (i.e. non-commissioned officers). They raise support to be able to serve at camp each summer. Noncoms spend two weeks in intensive training and then are mentored and coached as they serve in a variety of roles through the summer. Spending a week at camp as a camper is a ton of fun, but spending a summer as a noncom is literally life-changing.
