Summer staff consists mainly of college and senior high school students with experience and interest in child development. Staff are required to participate in an intensive five-day in-residence training program. Group counselors supervise and lead each camper group. Specialists guide activities such as archery, canoeing, horseback riding and arts & crafts. Each year, many universities and high schools throughout the nation are represented by camp staff.
In order to attend camp, each camper must be certified by a nurse or doctor within the past 12 months. The complete medical form must be in the camp office two weeks prior to the camper's first day at camp.

Hiram House Philosophy
Hiram House Camp aims to give children a healthy wholesome, stimulating experience in the out-of-door through living, playing, and cooperating in the beautiful environment of our natural woods. Camp aims to give children an appreciation of the American way of life by actually introducing campers to some of the experiences of our ancestors, such as outdoor skills. At camp, we have character building through participation.
