Our diverse staff is carefully selected, often from alumni of the different camps that are held at the facility, for their work ethic, independence, leadership abilities, unique strengths and love of Ogontz. Ogontz crew are cross trained to learn every part of the Ogontz experience from hospitality and culinary services, to gardening, design, maintenance and even carpentry. Staff gain event and team management experience and have gone on to use their leadership experience in their career endeavors. This outstanding young team of high school and college students will be happy to help make your stay at Ogontz a smooth one.
Ogontz is a collaborative camp that runs on a volunteer basis. Each group in session asks each of its campers to help out with small chores for 30 minutes a day. These chores include things such as helping with food prep and sweeping meeting spaces. Working in this manner makes everyone feel at home and part of the Ogontz family. It also provides a chance for participants to socialize with each other and with the Ogontz Crew. Many generous people enjoy this so much that they come back at other points in the summer season to help us out and volunteer for other groups. Ogontz greatly appreciates the kindness and support of all its volunteers.
