BCH Camp Staff
Now hiring. Follow the link below to apply for all summer positions.
General counselors form the core team for BCH Camp. Under the direction of the Camp Director and Assistant Director, the ministry of the general counselors is to plan, develop, and implement all camp activities and programs for the entirety of the camp season. Counselors work in cooperation with Chaplains, Adult Volunteers and Junior Counselors to build a fun, safe, and inclusive Christian community with and for campers who have completed 3rd-12th grade. Counselors must be at least 18 years of age and at least one year out of High School. Being a counselor at BCH is both a summer job and an intensive leadership and Christian formation experience where, together, we build a community while living as part of it.
This summer, we're excited to welcome Junior Counselors (JC's) to be part of the BCH summer staffing team. All high school Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are welcome to apply to be a part of the JC cohort for summer 2023. Applicants should plan to attend one week of camp as a camper and then note their availability for the other three sessions of camp on their application. Being a JC is a great way to strengthen a resume with documented leadership development, deepen your faith, gain new perspective, and build community in a fast-paced, fun, and high energy setting. Junior Counselors assist with all camp activities and are mentored by Counselors, Chaplains, and Adult Volunteers to grow their skills as counselors. They are supervised by the Camp Director and Assistant Camp Director.
Whether you want to come up to camp to lead a program for a day, or want to be a part of the camp community for a full week, camp is enriched by the presence and gifts of our adult volunteers. Volunteers are supervised by the Camp Director and work closely with the whole summer staff team.
