What is a Junior Counselor?

Being a Junior Counselor is an opportunity open to those who have just graduated from High School. As a Junior Counselor you will be working with a Counselor throughout the camp day while with your campers. There will also be ongoing training and bonding times throughout the week with the other Junior Counselors. Most responsibilities and duties that our Counselors have are also given to our Junior Counselors. We see this as a great way to give you a taste of what a summer will be like as a Counselor, with the opportunity of a slightly lesser time commitment throughout the summer. This position is compensated and you receive full room and board (even on the weekends). We will also give you a free week of camp for you to use sometime throughout the summer. If you have any more questions in regard to the Junior Counselor program, contact Pete Smith.
