Each summer, the Council invites two to four high school graduates that have attended previous years of camp to return for a leadership experience by serving at Co-op Leadership Camp as a Junior Counselor.  Students are selected based on leadership ability, performance at their year of camp as a participant, responsibility and dependability.  Counselor responsibilities include leading and setting up games and activities, assisting campers with a student-run co-op, monitoring activities and cabins, assisting camp staff, leading a service projects and more.  This experience offers our CLC Graduates a chance to lead activities, mentor new campers and expand on their leadership abilities.


Requirements to be a Jr. Counselor:

  • Have attended CLC as a teen
  • Be a High School graduate with at least a 3.2GPA
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Pass a background check
  • Have a letter of recommendation for leadership capabilities from either school or their co-op
