Counselor: at least one year out of high school

We are looking for counselors for two different programs: Group Camp, and Day Camp. In the interview process, you can let your interviewer know which program you are most passionate/excited about serving in.

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.
