Meet the Staff

We want your girl to thrive at camp so we hire staffers who can help her discover her best self. Our remarkable staff includes college students and young adults from across the United States and countries around the world. We hire women (and some men) who are compassionate, energetic, and fun. They come to us with experience, the ability to serve as role models and the genuine desire to work with children.

Our staff goes through intensive training in youth development, activity skills and safety procedures to help serve as outstanding role models for your camper. We use a selective hiring process to screen applicants, including background checks. Staffing reflects an overall adult/camper ratio of 1:6.

If you know any remarkable people who want to work at camp, send them to our summer jobs page!

Meet the Staff

Kelly “Clover” Ireland, Camp Director
This will be my third summer at Silverbrook and I am so excited to share the Silverbrook experience with your camper!  I have my Bachelors of Arts from Alma College with majors in Business and Music. I have been a camper/camp staff for 11 summers before joining the Silverbrook family. 
The Silverbrook experience is unlike any other.  From the moment the bus pulls into camp you are transported into a different world—surrounded by the beautiful property and singing staff members passing out high fives as you jump off the bus.  I love walking through camp to hear the sound of units singing as they walk around lake, girls laughing with new and old friends and counselors and girls encouraging each other as they challenge themselves to try new activities.  Few things make me happier than watching your girl come out of her shell at camp while leading a song, helping a friend solve a problem or watching PAs and CITs take on that next step in their leadership journey.  It warms my heart as the staff and I wave the bus goodbye and the girls are waving and singing out the windows.  I look forward to meeting your camper and welcoming her to Silverbrook.  If you have any questions, please contact me at kireland@gswise.org or 414-443-3975.
