Counselor

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

One of my favorite things about Trout Creek is the community. Campers are always so excited to come to camp and the staff are so loving and caring.

Jiminy – Counselor

Trout Creek is a place where I have formed some of my best relationships and a place where I have had the chance to tell people about Jesus. There is no other place where I get to hang out with 13 new kids every week and love on them.

I get to spend my summer hanging out with kids in nature and telling them about Jesus! I mean how is that even real life?? It's the best.

Yes, yes, and yes! The seeds you are planting in kids' lives cannot be done anywhere else. You get to build long-lasting eternal relationships with campers and staff that you can have here on Earth and in heaven someday! This is a bigger investment compared to making money working a summer job.
