Camp Counselors

Counselors act as a guardian while your child attends camp, as they are around them 24/7. They sleep in the residence hall on the same floor as the campers and don’t go to bed until all campers are in their rooms and accounted for. They wake campers in the morning to make sure they have time to eat breakfast and get to their first session on time. Counselors are in the dining area while campers are dining, and present while campers are in session.

Camp Instructors

Alison Weisz

Who am I?
Passion, Mindfulness, Perseverance. Three words I strive to incorporate daily. I have a passion for all things life, especially competitive rifle shooting. Mindfulness is easily forgotten in the constant movement of our typical lifestyles, yet highly beneficial in our sport. Life will not always go the way you planned but if you persevere each time, success will find you. My goal is to help athletes learn to embrace each of these terms, plus more, in their sport and also their life. I love to see young athletes following their dreams and their successes along the way. I want to be available as a resource to athletes of all levels to discuss training techniques, difficulties, differences, successes and anything else related. Experienced in building training plans, understanding balance of sport and life, and even the trials and tribulations to provide the “do’s and do not’s”. Looking forward to interacting with y’all!
