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!

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.


There are Junior Counselor positions available in the following camps:

  • PRE-CAMP for ages 3 to 5 (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 for group junior counselors, swim junior counselors, and horseback riding junior counselors!

Junior Counselors must commit to working one full session. Sessions range from 4 weeks to 6 weeks long.
