Cabin Counselors work directly with one cabin of 6-10 campers each week. They set the spiritual climate and direction of the cabin for the week by leading Bible Studies, facilitating team-building initiatives, and modeling the love of Christ by caring for the needs of their campers. Counseling is the most physically and emotionally demanding position on our summer staff team, but offers some of the more rewarding opportunities. Counselors receive training in first aid, CPR, low ropes facilitation, and evangelism during staff training. Counselors should be at least one year out of high school. (Though some exceptions may apply.)
