Camp Counselor

Most often referred to as the ‘Heart and Soul of Camp’, a Camp Counselor should be prepared to change lives, including your own. Camp Counselors provide a unique blend of instruction, mentoring, and leadership to campers.

Camp Counselors have the primary responsibilities of delivering camp programs that meet the needs and interests of girls, ensuring that girls are involved in the planning of their activities, regulating that those activities are outdoors and hands-on as often as possible, and confirming that each girl is given an opportunity to be actively involved in her own camping experience and that the experience meets the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE).

Camp Counselors ensure that staff and campers have a safe, fun, positive, fulfilling, and educational summer camp experience that supports membership growth and retention.

Camp Counselors may be assigned a specific area of emphasis based on specific interests and needs of the camp.
