Camp Counselors

If you enjoy kids, have lots of energy and like the outdoors, consider applying to be a camp counselor. Teams of 2 counselors are responsible for a living group of 8 campers 24/7 during camp.  You and your co-counselor will be responsible for getting your group to the activities, encouraging them to try new things, helping them experience all that camp has to offer, and be a young adult role model.

Counselors are required to attend training the day before camp begins. Counselors must be at least 14 by the time of camp. If selected, the cost for counselors is $50. Transportation is provided to and from camp for counselors.

Camp Counselor applications are due April 20 (or as soon as you fill it out! Don't wait until the last minute!)

Interviews will be held (Dates to be Announced) between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm (other times upon request) Watch for a notice for sign-up times coming soon....

You can co-counsel with a friend or if you don't have someone in mind, we will pair you up with someone from another county so you can make more friends!!

One half of the camp registration fee is provided if you are selected to help. Adults will go to and from camp the same time as campers.
