Returning counselor applications opening Nov. 1
New counselor and CIT applications opening Dec. 1
CAP applications opening Jan. 1
Counselors live, work, and play with the campers – they are on the front lines of everything happening at camp! Counselors spend each week living with their campers in a cabin setting (typically 10-14 campers per cabin, per week), and work alongside one or two co-counselors in the cabin who share the responsibility of leading and supervising your campers throughout the day. A typical day will include: waking campers up and getting them to morning devotions (“Morning Watch”) on time, serving meals family style in the dining hall, leading or participating in scheduled morning activities with your cabin, leading or assisting in various activities during afternoon free time, participating in evening programs and worship, and planning and leading a nightly devotion for your cabin. Counselors will be trained to lead at least one activity (see application), and will assist in various program responsibilities including worship, Bible Study, skits, evening activities, and other duties depending on your interests and skills.
- High school graduate with at least one year of college or other experience completed since graduation

CAP (Counselor Assistance Program)
The CAP (Counselor Assistant Program) seeks to offer an experience to those who strive to be a counselor at Camp Oak Hill once they are of age. This program will allow accepted campers to mimic counselor responsibilities, be discipled by college aged counselors, and gain knowledge on what it’s like to work at Camp Oak Hill. Please keep in mind that this program is designed for campers who foresee themselves as future counselors. We encourage those who do not want to be apart of this program to attend Session 6!
- Pre-camp retreat (not required but highly recommended)
- CAPs will be at camp for Session 4 & 5 (there will be no weekend stay for CAPs)
- Applications open Jan. 1 and close Jan. 31
- More details will be given upon acceptance
Counselors In Training - CIT
Counselors In Training are typically recent high school graduates, who will serve as junior counselors alongside counselors in the cabins, as well as being a part of a dish pit rotation. CITs will also have the opportunity to assist in leading various programs and activities throughout the summer, depending on skill, interest, and training. During this program, the CITs will gain insight on what it looks like to be a counselor at Camp Oak Hill. CITs work the entire summer, though we are happy to work around graduation schedules and college orientation. We are looking for SIX qualified candidates to fill our CIT positions.
