Join

the

team!

The Camp Directors are excited for you to join them in this opportunity to be with God! We pray to allow Him to work through all of us to plan another meaningful year for the spiritual formation of our youth and local churches.

Serving as a Camp Counselor is a big responsibility and an experience that we hope you find graceful, challenging, and purposeful.

Some Expectations: 

 

  • Willingness to share and articulate faith journey

  • Open to growing and challenging personal faith through JHC training and camp experience

  • Regular attendance and active participation at local church 

  • Responsible and dedicated team worker

  • Willingness to work with the directors, peers, and participating churches

  • Be a positive role model in all aspects of life (not just at church or at camp)

 

REQUIREMENTS:

  1. Incoming high school senior or older

  2. Completed entire application

  3. A signature and a statement by your local church pastor, youth leader or lay leader endorsing your qualifications as a counselor (attached below)

  4. One additional letter of recommendation from an adult who knows applicant’s strengths and weaknesses in leadership qualifications/abilities (i.e. teacher, professor, coach, employer) This may not be a parent or sibling.

  5. Attendance and full participation at JHC Counselor Training 2020 Meetings, the week of Junior High Camp and the post-camp gathering

Information for the Parents

As former counselors ourselves, we know just how crucial parental support is to our success as a counselor and we thank you for being the support system of this year’s counselors. We want to make sure to highlight the details of the areas parents tend to support the most- namely financially and with transportation- and to encourage you to reach out to our Directing Team if you have any questions or concerns!

  • Financially:

    • Counselor fee is 75% of camper registration

    • Counselors are financially responsible for providing materials for their growth groups and cabins

  • Transportation:

    • Counselors are not allowed to drive themselves to and from non-local camp meetings

    • Please note the All-Cal and Post-Camp dates and consider whether or not you will be able to assist with transportation at least once- you are highly relied upon for transportation for these meetings

Meeting Dates

Reminder: Attendance and participation at JHC 2020 meetings, Camp, and Post-Camp are required. If you know of a conflict, you must talk to the directors prior to the application deadline.
