Junior Counselor Program

In this junior counselor training program, youth and young adults ages 14+ from both Camp in the Community host churches and partnering churches will be invited to participate in a 15-hour intensive leadership course.


Youth are asked to apply and participate in a mock interview before the training. Upon completion of all requirements of the course, youth will receive a certificate of achievement and will be cleared to continue the immersion portion of training. 


Immersion training happens during a week of Camp in the Community, where they will be paired with trained camp counselors and mentors and will work with a small group of campers for the week.
