The staff and counselors, many of them have grown up at Camp themselves and now desire to give back a little portion of what Camp has provided them, are excited to interact with campers throughout the summer. Each counselor and staff are carefully chosen are excellent role models and strong leadership examples for your child. Counselors guide campers with common principles - impact campers through a positive growth in faith, character, confidence, respect and leadership and ensure a safe, fun-filled, non-competitive environment.
Our Camp Lackawanna counselors and staff are the most integral part in a camper’s development and acclimation with Camp Life. Our staff goes the extra mile – they take time to walk and talk with a camper when they need a friend, they are extraordinarily patient when teaching new skills, and they continually uphold a positive and safe environment for Camp Life. Our counselors and staff serve one united goal in which to help campers build their relationship with God in a safe, fun-filled environment.
(Must be at least 15 to apply regardless of grade)
Camp Lackawanna campers make great SITs and many SITs return each year, therefore this program is competitive and open to those who truly stand-out.
Before going further, there are three questions to ask yourself. Do you love being a positive role model to kids? Are you at least 16 years of age? Are you ready for the most challenging summer yet at Camp Lackawanna? If you heard yourself answering “YES!” to all three questions, then we want to talk with you about the Counselor-In-Training program.
Being a SIT combines all the fun you’ve always experienced at Camp, but now you have the awesome responsibility to demonstrate what you learned, and be a part of the Camp Team. By assisting counselors, each SIT will be presented valuable leadership in all aspects of Camp Life. The SIT program is a 2 week program including the weekend between sessions. Cost: $400 (for the whole 2 weeks) if registered by April 1st and $450 after April 1st.
