Who can be a Camp Counselor?
Our Camp Community is an experience of the Global Christian Family. Our staff and campers reflect the diversity of the Southern California community that we serve.
Previous youth ministry, camp ministry, or teaching experience is not required. A patient mind, open heart, and willingness to learn are far more important.
We recognize that there are many ways to grow in faith and community. All staff applicants who can live the values of a loving, supportive, and socially engaged Christian community are welcome.
If you are interested in becoming a counselor, please email Marlene at firstname.lastname@example.org
Age requirements for all programs:
Elementary: CITs are 16-17 years old; Juniors and Seniors
Elementary: Counselors are 18+
Jr. High: Counselors are 19+ and at least one year out of high school
Sr. High: Counselors are 23+
Production crew ages are the same as counselors/CITs
Chaperones are 25+
*Please note that chaperones and cabin counselors with family member campers in the program do not sleep in or supervise their child's cabin. We have adopted this policy to ensure that campers (and parents!) are able to fully enjoy the opportunity for freedom and growth.
