4-H’ers in grades 9 & up are encouraged to apply to be a PICCKMS Camp Counselor! Summer camp counselors have the opportunity to impact kid’s lives in a unique experiential outdoor setting. Counselors are challenged to find new ways of teaching, motivating, and having fun with campers while at camp. As a part of this leadership team, counselors also get to meet other youth from across northeast Minnesota and create friendships that will last a lifetime!

Applications are now being accepted until March 1, 2019. Complete the application packet (found below) and return to the Isanti County Extension Office by the deadline.

Counselors are also expected to participate in counselor training and camp planning meetings.

An overnight training will take place March 22-23 at North Isanti Baptist Church in Cambridge. Plan to arrive by 6 p.m. Friday night and stay until 3 p.m. Saturday. Please bring your calendar with your availability to the first training to help us set the dates of subsequent trainings.

Camp itself will take place from June 30-July 2nd at St. Croix State Park near Hinckley.
