Apply to be a Camp Counselor at Northern Pines 4-H Camp!

We are looking for responsible teens (9-12th grades) to fill the role of Camp Counselor at Northern Pines 4-H Camp to be held June 3rd-5th, 2018! The camp is for youth in 3rd-6th grades and counselors help to plan, lead, and supervise a variety of activities including: hands-on workshops, outdoor games, nature activities, lake activities (paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking, swimming), adventure games, crafts, campfire activities and more!

Last year, Becker County had 5 amazing counselors and several counselors said it was their favorite 4-H experience so far! Camp Counselors work alongside 4-H'ers from surrounding counties, working together to help plan the BEST CAMP EVER! A full day of training, planning, and FUN will take place on Saturday, April 21st at Northern Pines, in preparation for the upcoming summer and to get to know fellow counselors!

Northern Pines is located just outside Park Rapids, MN on beautiful Fish Hook Lake. Learn more about Northern Pines:
