VOLUNTEER COUNSELOR PROGRAM 

Our volunteer counselor position is a leadership program for young adults (15+ years old) interested in working at summer camp, changing children's lives, and gaining real-life job experience.  Because this is considered a training position and not a camper program, the applicant volunteer should be responsible for communication and following through with the application process.  Applications must be received by June 15 to be considered. Volunteer counselors are strongly recommended to attend summer camp open house and child abuse prevention training prior to assisting camp weeks.
