WHAT AGE SHOULD A CAMP WORKER BE? Camp workers come in all ages, shapes and sizes. Camp Counselors must be over the age of 18 in order to work at the Children’s and Teen camps. For CIT's, students must be 14-17 years of age by the date of the camp.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO DO AT CAMP? Being a Camp Counselor is not a summer vacation. Your involvement in the lives of these young people – in helping them make life-changing decisions – takes its toll on the energy and love needed to do your job throughout the week. All Camp Counselors meet daily for staff and personal encouragement, and communication from the Camp Director.
Most adult workers at camp are assigned cabin responsibilities for 10-12 children or youth. Activities will vary according to the age of the group, and your responsibilities would include (but are not limited to) clean-up following a meal, supervision of recreational activities, leadership of cabin spiritual enrichment time, and general oversight of the health and welfare of the campers under your care.
WHAT WILL IT COST TO ATTEND CAMP? The Camps Board underwrites your participation in camp by providing lodging and meals. The transportation to and from camp is your responsibility. We discourage other members of your family from attending camp with you, unless they are registered to attend the same camp. You will find yourself engulfed in the activities of your campers, and family members “tagging along” will only be a hindrance in building relationships and carrying out the responsibilities of being a Camp Counselor.
