Keystone prides itself on our exceptional ability to personally connect with each and every camper, much due to our highly trained and qualified staff. Our leadership team maintains a “hands-on” approach, and is part of daily activities and development of staff members. Three credentialed teachers head this on-site team to ensure a positive camp experience for every child. Meet our Keystone Leadership Team:

raising their two teenagers. She grew up in San Marcos and attended the
University of San Diego where she received her B.A. in Diversified
Liberal Arts (Bilingual Emphasis), as well as a Master’s of Education in
Literacy Development. Estela has been applying her teaching philosophy
with kindergartners in the Solana Beach School District for the past 29
years. She thoroughly enjoys the curiosity, honesty, dreams and optimism
that her students share with her every day. There’s never a dull moment!
Estela is excited to be at Keystone South with your little ones this summer!
A mentor is a compass that points your child’s curiosity in the right direction!
Camp Keystone South employs a top to bottom local staff! Because North County bonds are so mighty, we don’t hire outside the community. Our mentors and counselors are your neighbors, your friend’s daughter home from college for the summer, your son’s favorite school teacher; a homespun staff dedicated to your children, handpicked by those you know and trust. Keystone South provides an intimate and secure stomping ground for emotional, social, physical and cognitive growth, where big hearts shape budding, adventurous, and curious minds!
With years of experience in day camping and childcare, our dedicated staff oversee and mentor your child in every aspect and activity in their day. Lasting positive relationships are built with the communal feel of Keystone South – through encouraging your child to take risks, helping them through physical challenges, and developing new and diverse recreational interests.
Our staff is thoroughly pre-trained through on-site extensive instruction as well as ongoing staff development throughout the summer. Your child’s needs are at the forefront of all trainings, as our staff is capable of making even the most reluctant camper’s day positive. Our key goals are to impart life skills, build confidence and connections, and to understand each child as an individual.
