Continue your skills as a Junior Counselor!
Did you LOVE camping, hiking, rafting, rock climbing, and being outside? While at our camps were you always eager to ask questions, learn more, and help others?
If you answered “Oh YEAH!” then you’re a Natural Leader and we want you back!
Fill out the application below and we’ll contact you to match you with an upcoming activity or trip.
Junior Counselors should be in high school and completed both Wyoming experiences. Older students who join the program and only complete Advanced Adventures are also eligible to apply.
Unfortunately, we don’t have space for every student to return as a Junior Counselor but we take as many as we can.
Students will be selected based on their past behavior at camp and goals for returning.
Junior Counselors are required to attend a special training where we learn team building games, go over the camp schedule and talk about their responsibilities while at camp.
They are also expected to attend the overnight or pre camp activity with the group they’ll be accompanying to Wyoming.
Junior Counselors return to Wyoming with a new group of students, typically with the Emerging Explorers and then return the next summer with the same group for Advanced Adventures.
They participate in all activities they completed as students, but with more responsibility and leadership!
Why stop after summer! Junior Counselors can continue to attend our year round activities and are encouraged to go to reunions. These activities are not required but are a lot of fun and a great way to continue relationships made younger campers.
