Counselors are an essential part of camp! Counselors guide children and youth through their time at camp– as a counselor you have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on a child’s life and create wonderful memories of your own. We need many caring, enthusiastic adults to serve as counselors; we have a low adult-child ratio, sometimes as low as 5 campers to 1 adult. That means we need lots of counselors so that lots of kids will be able to come to camp. Please consider serving in this very important volunteer position and give children the experience of building community at Birchwood Camp. Counselors must be at least 18, and we love having counselors of all ages! Click here to see session dates for our camp programs.
ALSO… we welcome youth between the ages of 16 and 18 as Counselors in Training (or CITs) to counsel at our elementary camps during the summer. If you are interested serving as a CIT, check out our Counselor in Training Program. CITs make energetic and exciting counselors, and they build great friendships and memories as well!
