Teen camp counselors sought

Teens in grade 9-12 from Pine, Mille Lacs, Kanabec, Isanti Carlton, Chisago, and Washington counties are being sought to become Camp Counselors.

Selected counselors will meet once a month, February until June, to plan a Regional Camp. The camp is designed and lead by teen counselors for youth completing grades fourth through eighth. The camp is sponsored by the University of Minnesota Extension 4-H program; however, campers and counselors do not need to be 4-H members to attend. Camp will be held June 18-20 in the beautiful St. Croix State Park at the Norway Point group campgrounds (located east of Hinckley).

In addition to the camp planning meetings, the teens will be trained in how to be a counselor. Counselor training will provide the counselors with leadership skills, positive youth development skills, and knowledge on emergency procedures.
