Counselors are selected from area high schools or colleges through an application/interview process.  

The counselor’s role involves both supervision and leadership of a group of campers for the entire camp, including staying in the same cabin.  Problem-solving and discipline will occasionally be required for both the group and individuals.  Counselors are expected to develop a close and positive relationship with their campers.  Also, counselors are expected to be outgoing, enthusiastic, fun, patient, encouraging, and assertive.  Above all, a counselor is to be a role model and lead by example, which includes being drug-free both at camp and the rest of the time.  


Applicants are drug-free youth who have demonstrated leadership ability and are strong role models.  “Drug-free” means youth who do not use tobacco/vape, alcohol, or other illegal drugs.
