Teen Education Junior Counselor We are hoping our camps will resume in July. We will need to be in Phase 3 to be able to host camp. We will share updates here as we receive them.
Teens aged 15-18 can also earn service hours by assisting with our kids programs, including our camps, and special events. Junior Counselors MUST be friendly and outgoing, and MUST enjoy interacting with children. Activities Junior Counselors might assist with include: helping to facilitate games, crafts, and proper animal handling, set up and clean up.
Prospective Junior Counselors must contact our education coordinator, Renee at for details.
