Description of duties/responsibilities: We are one of very few Christian therapeutic wilderness camps for girls. We are a 365 day_a_year camping program tailored to meet the needs of girls who are dealing with past hurts and frustrations in their lives.

Camp is hard work yet it is quite rewarding. Many counselor/teachers grow tremendously in personal, mental, emotional, professional, and spiritual areas of their life. The camp environment helps staff and camper alike to grow to be prepared to meet the challenges ahead of them in life. That said we ask them to give up themselves and help girls to gain a chance toward hope in life.
