JUNIOR SUMMER CAMP COUNSELOR PROGRAM

In the Junior Summer Camp Counselor Program, teens aged 12-15 years old have the opportunity to gain camp related experience under the guidance of veteran Camp Counselors. They will interact with campers, help with activities and serve as leaders in camp spirit and motivation. As the Camp Counselors’ right-hand-person, they assist the Counselors in the day to day operations of the camp program. Most importantly, Junior Summer Camp Counselors must serve as a role model for the campers. The Junior Summer Camp Counselor program will enable teens to give of their time in a service oriented capacity while gaining resume worthy experience in our day camp setting.
