Counselors are young adults who exhibit and articulate a genuine, active life of faith. With their enthusiasm to know and share Christ, counselors are role models who invite campers to dive deeper into their faith. Daily prayer, reflection and study are key in helping to develop excellent camp programs.
Counselors exhibit savvy leadership. Hearing and valuing the input of others, they make thoughtful decisions that maximize the fun and learning opportunities at camp. Many counselors come to the team with experience in faith formation, teaching, outdoor activity skills and/or leadership experience from their academic pursuits.
Counselors connect with each other in their shared service to campers and time off from camp is “Montana Amazing”. They are hiking Glacier National Park, whitewater rafting, sampling local huckleberry ice cream and building friendships in the beauty of creation.
“ For me, it was campers’ contagious joy at wanting to be there, have fun and push further into their faith that was so rewarding. I felt a great joy and peace being able to walk with them and be with them and sense that hunger for Christ that we shared together.” Cody T., Counselor 2013 – 2015
“Getting to live in community you really become like a family. It helps in the work as you kind of become a well oiled machine. We would also go on adventures together on our time off, or even just hang out around the campfire. I still spend time with fellow counselors that I go to Carroll College with and keep in touch with others. it’s a great way to form new friendships.” Anna M., Counselor 2015
Volunteering at camp is a great way to serve and grow in your faith. Volunteers are asked to spend a week (Sun-Fri) at camp to better participate in community and gain the skills needed to be an excellent contributor to the mission. Volunteers fill a critical roles as we help young people connect with adults who will accompany them on their incredible camp journey.
Volunteer training includes camp safety, diocesan safe environment training, camp operation skills and programs support.
