For over 30 years we have been sharing our natural world with children of all ages.Daily activities include team building using our ropes course, hiking, tracking, swimming, identification, and exploring of the vast natural surroundings.
All Bushy Hill staff members undergo an extensive application and training process to gain employment. Our summer team is comprised of active, intelligent, and enthusiastic people. We strive to employ people who currently teach in school systems or who would someday teach in school systems.Safety is our number one goal at Bushy Hill. There are certified lifeguards, cpr, first aid, archery, boating, and ropes course administrators on staff. Each staff is trained in confllict resolution, classroom management, and positive interactions.
