Become a Camp Counselor

Being a camp counselor is an excellent opportunity to develop additional leadership, teamwork, decision making and problem solving skills while enjoying the camp experience. 

The counseler selection process also helps teens prepare for future job and college application processes by requiring a written application, letters of recommendation and interviews.

Letters of Recommendation

Required from all teen counselors, these letters can be from club leaders, teachers or other adults that can attest to your character. Letters may not be from family members, even if that family member happens to be a club leader or teacher.

Interviews

Counselor applicants will be questioned by the IRC 4-H Youth Development Agent and/or Camp Advisory Committee Members. All applicants will be interviewed.

Training

Counselors will be required to attend the Camp Counselor Training sessions held at the IRC Extension office and/or at Camp Cloverleaf.
