Junior Counselors

Our Junior Counselors participate in our Camper in Leadership Training program at camp.  Being a Junior Counselor at camp is a wonderful way to spend the summer – developing many invaluable life skills!

*NOTE: We are currently unable to accept anymore Junior Counselor Applications for Summer 2021

Former Junior Counselors say that their time at summer camp was very helpful when applying to jobs, colleges or other leadership roles. Many Junior Counselors use their experience at camp to fulfill any school-required community service hours as this is an unpaid position. Junior Counselors need to be current 9th or 10th graders.


Junior Counselors will have the opportunity to work with campers of different ages:

  • PRE-CAMP for ages 3 to 5/6 (entering kindergarten)
  • DAY CAMP for ages 6 to 10 (through 5th grade)
  • TSC TOO!  for ages 5 to 9 (through 3rd grade)

Positions are available in all Specialist Programs: Pool, Horses, Archery, and Activities.

Junior Counselors must commit to working one full session. Sessions are 2-3 weeks in length.
