We are looking for counselors to work with all four different programs: Group Camp, Day Camp, Sports Camp, and Individual Camp. As a counselor you will be trained in all four programs and throughout the summer you will rotate between them.
Group Camp Counselor
Each week co-ed partners will lead 20-25 junior high and high school students through purposeful and pre-planned experiences using incredible adventure activities at Black Diamond Camps Camps while displaying to students the love of Christ. Guide campers for all hours of the day, be a part of creating flexible schedules that cater to each groups’ needs, lead Bible studies, build relationships and facilitate activities/group development that will provide opportunities for scripture to come to life. Sleep in nearby dorms with other counselors unless the group requires otherwise. Counselors will also assist in behind-the-scenes programming and doing whatever it takes to keep camp running (including cleaning, dish-washing and necessary work projects).
Day Camp Counselor
These counselors will be working with younger students (Kindergarten - 6th grade) from morning to mid-afternoon. They will take care of them, lead them through Bible studies, adventure pieces, and group development. These counselors will work at Black Diamond Camps. Being on-site at all times, staff will sleep in nearby dorms with other counselors. Counselors should plan on helping out with the behind-the-scenes workload. This means driving vans, washing dishes, cleaning rooms, leading/setting up activities, potentially leading worship, and anything else that may be required to help Day Camp run efficiently and successfully.
Sports Camp Counselor
Sports Camp is our summer camp for athletic groups and individuals. Athletes come for top notch athletic training and are introduced to outdoor adventure, authentic relationships and biblical truth.
