Camp Counselor applications are now available for youth in grades 9 and over. Serving as a camp counselor is a key leadership activity for many 4-H youth. Camp counselors learn important leadership skills like persistence and teamwork, develop long-lasting relationships, and learn how to respond in a variety of scenarios. Camp counselors support younger youth (who have just completed 3rd-8th grades) in learning and help them have an affirming and fun experience. Counselors work with staff to create and lead camp activities.
