Group staff to camper ratios are generally as follows:
- Grade Ratio
- Pre-K 1:3
- K-1st 1:5
- 2nd-4th grade 1:7
- 5th-6th grade 1:8

Campers’ groups have a head counselor who is college age or older, and additional counselors who are high school or college students. Group counselors stay with their campers throughout the day and are active participants and helpers at each activity.
Programs & Activities
At Rolling Hills, experienced specialists offer the highest quality instruction and supervision in each activity area. Our specialists are hand selected for their particular skill level in each area of camp, and for their strong ability to teach these skills to our campers in an encouraging manner. Many Rolling Hills specialists are teachers, coaches, or professionals in their particular field. Group counselors accompany our campers to every activity to provide additional assistance and support, but are not responsible for teaching each activity.
