Doe River Gorge has a committed team of 18 full-time staff members with a combined total of over 215 years of camping ministry experience. During the summer, this staff is complemented by 70 of the most hardworking, kid-loving, God-honoring college students that we can find. Before beginning service, summer staff members receive 130 hours of intensive training.
Health and Safety
At Doe River Gorge, safety is top priority. While danger is inherent in any adventure activity, Doe River Gorge seeks to minimize that risk through well-designed courses, regularly inspected professional equipment, and highly-trained staff. A medical professional is on site 24/7 during the summer.
Emotional safety is very important to us. Doe River Gorge strives for a counselor/student ratio of 2:8, minimizing the potential for bullying and giving your child personalized supervision, instruction, and attention.
Doe River Gorge takes pride in serving great tasting, nutritious meals. Fresh fruits and vegetables are always available and special diets can be accommodated with prior notice.
