What Are Junior Counselors?
An opportunity to make an impact for students who have completed 11th grade by summer.
Camp is THE PLACE TO BE for high school students looking for a summer job. Students who’ve completed 11th grade by the summer have the opportunity to join our team at Forest Glen. Each Junior Counselor is paired with a Summer College Age Staffer who will teach them the ropes (literally!) and help them grow in their walk with Christ. High school students can make some money and also make an impact with us this summer.
