Counselors play a crucial role in our one-week residential camp. For every 2 counselors we may have up to 9 campers, so every counselor makes a big difference in how many campers we may have!
What do Counselors do?
Together with at least one other adult, counselors reside in the cabins with their assigned campers, who are divided by age and gender, throughout the entire week. Counselors take primary responsibility for the health and well-being of campers as well as provide support during activities. For a detailed description of responsibilities, click here.
Being a cabin counselor at St. Eugene's is one of the best experiences of my life. As a camper I fell in love with everything we do at St. Eugene's, and it is such a joy for me to have a part in continuing that tradition for campers to come. A diocesan camp is so important in showing kids that there really is a bigger community of orthodox young people surrounding them, and as a counselor you are the one making it possible for each camper to enjoy that. Counseling is the most fulfilling service work I have experienced: you learn the joy of being someone they rely on and are inspired by.
