Apply to be a Camp Counselor!
What does it mean to be a
Compassion Camp Counselor?
Being a Camp Counselor means creating community in your cabin and with the camp at large.
Camp Counselors are the pillars for safety and transformation during camp.
Through trainings we provide tools for camp success!
Every camp has between 12-20 camp counsellors that help guide their cabins (of 5-12 campers each) through a transformational experience.
Your cabin will be a theme of your choice, which campers will have the option of signing up for.
As a camp counsellor, you will have time with your cabin to guide activities and lead a workshop, and will be able to also enjoy the rest of camp on your own time.
Camp counsellors are eligible for a reduced ticket price as part of their valuable contribution to making camp a success! We will also provide 2 trainings (details below) to help our camp counsellors be as effective and successful as possible.
We will also organize team hangouts to help everyone get to know each other and develop a special sense of family before camps start!
