Campers to Counselors...

Murray Camp is such a mainstay in the life of those who summer on Nantucket that many of our campers become our counselors! All of our counselors have had experience with babysitting and most are First Aid Certified, CPR Certified, and are certified Life Guards.

In addition to our full-time staff, we subcontract three lifeguards from the Nantucket Community School Pool, an art teacher, the crew of the sailing vessel Endeavor, the Absolute fishing vessel staff and the ACK Surf staff.


The Friendship Sloop Endeavor has been offering sailing charters in Nantucket for over 30 years. The Endeavor is a Coast Guard Certified Vessel inspected each spring by the United States Coast Guard. The crew of the Endeavor is required by the Coast Guard to participate in a random drug-testing program. The route the Endeavor takes is typically out through the Jetties and in the Nantucket Sound. The vessel is no more than three miles from shore at any point in the trip. Captain James Genthner has been operating the Endeavor in Nantucket for the entire 30 years. He is a Coast Guard Licensed Captain who has been sailing for over 30 years. Jim and his wife, Sue Genthner, reside on the island year round, where they raised their two children. 


In accordance with Massachusetts law, Murray Camp performs full background checks on all counselors and employees of the camp - including CORI and SORI checks.
