Youth who have completed grades 9 or higher are considered Camp Counselors. Counselors in Training (CIT) are youth who have completed grades 7 & 8. If you are interested in being a Camp Counselor or a CIT you need to complete the application at the beginning of June (exact deadline is listed below). All youth interested in being a Camp Counselor or a CIT, who meet the grade requirements, will be selected. There is no selection or interview process.
Besides completing the application, to be a counselor you will need to attend a two-day training session hosted by the 4-H Program Coordinator that generally takes place 2-3 weeks before camp. At this training the team will pick out the camp theme, go over job descriptions, practice leading games/activities, practice putting up/taking down the tents, learn best practices about helping youth, and learn what they will be doing at camp this year.
