Camp Oak Hill Camperships (Financial Assistance)
Camp Oak Hill has a desire to provide all children a wonderful Camp experience, regardless of financial status or family situation. Camperships are available each summer for campers based on financial need and fund availability. A $100 (or $200 deposit for Leadership Development Program) deposit is required with the submission of the Campership Application. Please either register for camp online and pay the $100 (0r $200) deposit OR call our office to make the payment over the phone. We will not award camperships without the initial deposit paid. Please fill out the application (link below) and we will contact you regarding award approval and amount.
Camperships are available for all sessions. Based on financial need and fund availability, campers may apply for one session only each summer (12-day Leadership Development Program session counts as one session).
Camperships help many families each year enjoy an awesome camp experience in a Christian setting. This would not be possible without the generous support of donors. If you know of anyone who would be able to assist Camp Oak Hill in this manner, please have them contact us at (919) 782-2888.
Applications for camperships open Dec. 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. Minimum Qualifications:
- High school graduate with at least one year of college or other experience completed since graduation
- A strong desire and passion for working with children and youth in a ministry setting
- Demonstrated commitment to the Christian faith
- Strong work ethic and skills in communication, teamwork, and leadership

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 in our Dish Pit and as junior counselors. CITs will also assist with meal preparation and 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 be on a weekly rotating schedule. Each week, half of the CITs will be on Dish Pit duty while the other half will be junior counselors in the cabin. 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 Work Crew positions.
