It is once again that time of year to start thinking about being a 4-H Summer Camp Counselor for the 2017 camping season! Being a Summer Camp Counselor is a very exciting and rewarding opportunity, you are able to work with younger 4-H members that look up to you as a role model. Share your knowledge, interest and enthusiasm for 4-H! Being a camp counselor is open to youth that are in grades 9-13. Summer Camp dates are June 26th-30th , 2017. Counselor numbers may be limited and not all counselors will stay all week. Some counselors may only be at camp for first session or second session only.

*A required Counselor training for all new counselors will be held in spring.
