|Owner and Staff
In a summer camp, staff is the determining factor between opportunities lost or a learning experience so rich for a boy that its possibilities can never be measured. Night Eagle’s real strength lies not only in its program, but in its staff.
All counselors are at least 18 years old or have completed their freshman year in college. They are chosen for their experience, knowledge, moral integrity, and dedication to working with young people. They are teachers, students, artists, craftsmen, and musicians -- each has his own special skill.
A native of Natchez, Mississippi, Camp Director/Owner Bruce Moreton grew up exploring the creeks, rivers, forests, and bayous of Southwest Mississippi. A graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi, Bruce has taught English and social studies for over 35 years and has been involved in a wide range of youth oriented activities, both in the community and in the schools in which he has taught. Currently, Bruce teaches high school English, coaches middle school basketball, and serves as the men’s tennis coach at Castleton State College in Castleton, Vermont.
An American Red Cross volunteer, Bruce has been a certified water safety instructor since 1967 and is currently certified as a Red Cross standard first aid/CPR instructor and as a lifeguard and a lifeguard training instructor. In twenty years of residential and primitive camp experience in North Carolina and in New England, he has served as waterfront director, head counselor, hiking instructor, trip coordinator, program director, and director.
His solid background in a range of camping experiences and lifelong appreciation of the wonders of the wilderness and its potential for the education of the youth of today make him an ideal leader of Night Eagle Wilderness Adventures.
After searching for several years in New England and North Carolina for a place on which to start his own primitive boys' camp, he finally came upon 135 acres in East Wallingford, Vermont, that was ideal for a camp. Bruce lives year round in Vermont with his two sons, Wyatt and Tripp, who grew up at Night Eagle and share his love of the camp.
“You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of our grandfathers.
So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin.
Teach your children what we have taught our children -- that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of the earth.”
- Chief Seattle
