Our staff is a diverse group of young men and women, ranging in age from 18 to mature adult! They come from different backgrounds and parts of the world. Camp counselors spend the majority of time with campers and are mostly college students. Many of our counselors are hired and sponsored by Camp America.

Camp America program is designed to give college students the best of both worlds – work and play! Following camp placement, counselors can share their culture with campers and when their camp assignment has ended they have the opportunity to travel and explore the United States, enjoying all the fun, excitement and adventure there is to discover.

Camp Illahaw strives for campers to have a safe and enriching experience.  At Camp Illahaw we hire only the most qualified staff to work with your children. All staff members undergo background and drug screening in their home country, as well as in the United States, before they are hired. Many of our staff members were once campers themselves. With that reflection, they are eager to pass down this great summer tradition to other campers. We also have professionals that oversee the camp in areas of great skill including equestrian related activities and Camp Mom & Dad to take care of bumps, bruises, bug bites, medication and dinner!

Camp Illahaw is owned and operated by Allen Broussard Conservancy, a nonprofit organization governed by the Board of Directors
