Junior Counselors (Entering 8th, 9th, & 10th Grade)

 

Daily Activities

 

Our Junior Counselor program answers the question: “What do we do with our 13, 14, or 15 year old who has outgrown being a camper but is too young to be a counselor?”  

 

Junior Counselors will be assigned to activities that they enjoy. They will act as big brothers/sisters to our younger campers while having a summer of being involved with the program(s) they enjoy most.

 

The Program provides teens an opportunity to gain valuable work experience while having an amazing summer!  They learn the value of responsibility and they experience the joys of working with children through interactive activities.
