Counselors are the heart and soul of our traditional camps. They spend their week utilizing every opportunity to connect with and serve their campers. They play a key role in the emotional, physical, and spiritual care of campers who come through both our Resident Overnight Camps and Day Camps while being supported by the leadership team and recreational staff team. They spend time with their cabin at meals as well as activities and games, and they also lead their cabin in nightly discussions after the evening message. This position provides an incredible opportunity to foster relationships and be a role model to the younger generation!
While counselors’ primary focus is on camper care, any summer staff may be asked to fill in other areas as needed such as facilitating activities, guest services and housekeeping.
