Keepers of the Totem
The Keepers the Totem is a recognition program for full-time Fire Mountain staff members to recognize their long-term commitment and dedication to camp.
The program recognizes staff members who have served more than two years and have completed a series of requirements.
There are several levels to the program, each one represented by one of the totems on the Fire Mountain Totem Pole: Thunderbird, O'Lady of the Woods, Beaver, Eagle, Bear, Raven, and Whale. Staffers can earn one Knowledge-of-Camp Totem each year, in addition to Service Totems.
It is a privilege to be recognized as a member of the Keepers of the Totem, and to wear the symbols associated with it. Along with this privilege comes great responsibilities to maintain the highest standards associated with being a Fire Mountain Staffer.
