Camp Counselor

As a camp counselor, you are responsible for a group of 10 to 15 campers daily.  You ensure that the safety and well being of each camper is provided.  You lead the group through activities and safely around campgrounds. Camp counselors also serve as mentors to junior counselors. Junior counselors are campers who have been promoted into a leadership position. They are learning to take on the responsibilities of a camp counselor and will assist camp counselors in their duties.
