These counselors share a love of nature, sports and creativity with their charges- and Camp Kirby boasts an excellent counselor-to-camper ratio of 6 to 1.
Specially trained counselors are hired for Camp Kirby’s 4-week session for deaf and hard of hearing children and their siblings. Many of these counselors are also deaf and make excellent role models for the campers.
