Junior Counselor On-Line Appplication

Junior Counselors are an important part of the Glover Pioneer Camp program.  From leading group games, to assisting staff counselors, we rely on our Junior Counselors to make camp programs run smoothly and to help assure the safety of younger campers. The job carries either Lake Region High School community service credits or a $100 stipend (more for returnees)–  and can be a valuable resume builder if you do it well.
We are making changes to our Junior Counselor program in order to improve its effectiveness:

  •  For the 2017 camp season, Junior Counselors must be entering high school (9th grade and up)  in the fall.
  • Junior Counselors will be required to attend a full day orientation and training prior to the opening of camp.
  • Pioneer Camp will make every effort to make your duties and our expectations clear.  In return, we expect Junior Counselors to be focused and ready to help at all times.

Being a Junior Counselor at Glover Pioneer Camp is a serious responsibility. It is not just about earning credits, or socializing with other junior counselors (although this is a fun plus when the time is right.) It is important that you are prepared to give this job your full attention, to offer help to your assigned counselor even before you are asked, and to work well with and without supervision. Attitude is important too! That is a lot to ask, but we are looking for very special young people!
