- what to expect -


Counselors are cabin leaders for campers during the week, 24 hours a day for the week. They are role models for their campers and CITs and are encouraged to participate in the camp program with enthusiasm and support, so that campers join in as well. Counselors prepare and lead cabin Bible studies each day, supervise and take part in tons of free time activities such as canoeing, paintball, zip line, archery, swimming, climbing wall, mountain biking, among other things.

Applying to be a Counselor is open to anyone who has completed 12th grade by the start of Summer!

Become a Camp Counselor

This last summer at Trout Creek was one of my favorite summers ever! I love working at Trout Creek! It's been one of the biggest times of growth in my faith and my life. It's such a cool experience to be able to lead others to Christ or push them in their growth while you are also walking them alongside them in your relationship with Christ. The past two summers with Trout Creek have been a very important part of my life that I will never forget!

In a season of uncertainty and worry, God used this summer to show me how to trust in him. He blessed me with an amazing community that poured into me and the opportunity to love God's children. Camp has helped me through so many seasons throughout my life.

I have met so many people who amaze and inspire me at camp. Every summer I go to camp I leave in awe of the new ways that I have seen Jesus work. Not only am I given the chance to speak into the lives of young people, I am challenged in my faith and get to learn from the people around me. Being in creation, with no electronics and people who also love Jesus gives me the space to really listen to what the Lord has to say. I have learned how to take the teachings of God and really learn and understand them.

I really gained the hunger for the gospel at camp. Plus, the way God brings people together at camp is amazing! Normally my life would have kept going without meeting any of the staff. But God brought every single one of us to camp to serve Him together.

It’s so fun but so challenging and you get to face the challenges with some of the coolest people ever. Plus you can like sing fun songs, teach kids about Jesus and just form super positive relationships.
