Adventure is calling. Are you ready?
"This experience changed my life..."
As a Junior Counselor, you will spend two weeks volunteering at camp. They will be some of the hardest and best weeks of your life. You will serve and laugh and lead and love. You'll spend each week serving with a camper group, working with our summer staff to help lead a small group of kids. These kids will think you are the coolest person in the world, and you'll get to share in their life and their faith. You'll be mentored by our summer staff and encouraged as you follow Jesus Christ. And you'll get to be part of an unforgettable community of your fellow JC's.
You must currently be a sophomore in high school or older to apply to be a Junior Counselor.
***UPDATE 2/26/2018: We will be contacting applicants about our 2018 Junior Counselor selection decisions on March 8, 2018. This is a week later than originally planned because of the large number of applications we received and the need to complete interviews with all of those people before making our final decisions. We appreciate your patience!***
Step One: Fill out the 2018 Junior Counselor Application: 2018 JUNIOR COUNSELOR APPLICATION
Step Two: Choose a pastor/youth leader and a teacher/coach to serve as your references and have them fill out the following recommendation form: RECOMMENDATION FORM
*If, after submitting either form, you receive an error message, it is likely that your application/recommendation was still successfully submitted. You can double check the status of your submission by emailing Kardia at email@example.com.
Session 1: June 9 - 23
Frequently Asked Questions:
How much time do I get off during my JC session?
Serving as a Junior Counselor, most of your days will be spent being with your camper group and helping to serve the ministry of camp. There will be some time set aside during the weekend in between your first and second week at camp for you to relax and hang out with your fellow JCs, as well as enjoy the fun of camp. Otherwise, expect to work hard and have a blast serving at camp!
What if I've never been to Camp Luther before? Can I still serve as a JC?
Absolutely! We welcome any high school students looking to grow in their leadership and faith to apply to be a Junior Counselor. Your service as a JC will likely challenge you in different ways than someone who is more familiar with our summer programs, but the training we provide will get you up to speed in no time.
The session dates I'm available for have changed. How do I let you know?
PLEASE let us know immediately if there is a change to the available dates that you indicated on your application. We rely on this information to be able to fill our different sessions, and changes in this information can have significant consequences if we are not informed before final selections are made. If you need to change the session dates you are available for, please email Kardia at firstname.lastname@example.org with the changes.
Can I do laundry while I'm at Camp Luther?
Yes! The weekend in between your first and second week at camp there will be time set aside for you to do laundry using camp's facilities.
Am I allowed to have my phone during my JC session?
In order to encourage our Junior Counselors to be intentional about community building and to remain focused on their campers, we do not allow Junior Counselors to have their phone with them during the week. There will be time set aside on the weekend for you to check your phone, touch base with family/friends, etc. However, we want to encourage you to be present during your experience here, and limiting technology use is a part of this. Should you need to call home, or if your family needs to get in touch with you, Camp Luther staff will be the mediators of this process.
