Impact The Next Generation!

Camp Oak Hill Summer Staff,

Change Their Life, Change Your Life!


Counselors In Training (CIT)

CITs (Counselors in Training) are recent high school graduates who will serve alongside counselors in the cabins for the entire summer camp season. Through this experience, CITs will gain insight on what it takes to be a counselor at Camp Oak Hill. This program also allows for opportunities to actively lead daily activities and work behind-the-scenes. 

  • CITs are typically recent high school graduates (we are flexible with graduation schedules and college orientation)
  • CITs will have the opportunity to assist with programs, lead activities, and help with overall camp facility needs

  • CITs will stay in cabins with campers and counselors. They will support their counselors, share meals with their campers, and have ample opportunity to build relationships outside of their other duties.

  • CITs report to the Assistant Camp Director

Summer Camp Counselors

We’re looking for individuals who have typically completed their freshman year of college (or equivalent experience). Counselors live, work, and play with the campers – they are on the front lines for everything that happens at camp! They are privileged to intentionally build relationships and disciple campers to grow in faith. Counselors spend each week living with campers in a cabin setting alongside one or two co-counselors.

  • A cabin will typically house 10-14 campers each week 
  • Camp is offered to rising 2nd-12th graders over 8 weeks
  • Counselors will:
    • Lead and supervise their campers throughout the day
    • Facilitate activities (i.e., lifeguarding waterfront, conducting team building exercises, refereeing field games, etc.)
    • Participate with high energy in morning jam, evening worship, and camp-wide programs
    • Prepare and lead nightly devotions for their campers

ALL counselors will be required to be certified as either a Challenge Course Facilitator or Lifeguard. Certification training will be conducted during a portion of staff/skills training.


COH Administrative Staff

Our summer admin staff is crucial to the success of the summer camp ministry. These staff members will assist with the overall day-to-day operations of camp, such as activities and recreation, worship and programs, camp store, media, and mentor groups. The key components of this position are maturity, self-motivation, and demonstrated steward leadership. Leadership staff will also display an earnest desire to equip and serve the counselors as they build relationships with campers and deepen their faith in Christ. Additionally, leadership staff will have completed two years of college, or equivalent experience, by the start of the summer.
