The Green Meadows staff are a fantastic group of dynamic and highly qualified individuals. All staff are employees of the Merced County Office of Education and are background checked and fingerprinted as well as CPR trained. The Naturalist staff are all graduates of a four year university, and occasionally some interns are currently working towards a degree at the time of their internship. In addition, each school year at Camp Green Meadows starts off with two weeks of staff training. Our teaching staff pride themselves on their professionalism and are dedicated to creating a positive and impacting experience for students at Camp Green Meadows.
