Counselor-In-Training Session
This program is for young men and women who want to begin working at Camp Turner. Participants must be 16 years of age before the summer begins, have working papers and complete a staff application. The first round of interviews will be schedule after March 15. Space is limited to the six most qualified applicants. Later applications will be accepted if positions are still available.

This is an internship program with several components including outdoor education, leadership training, service, journaling, spiritual reflection, discernment, team building and staff training. Participants will spend week one in staff training with regular camp staff. Week two is a week-long retreat based service learning program focused on discernment, discovering the presence of God in all things, and discovering your own spiritual gifts. The program will include a backpacking trip and service learning experience. The remainder of the summer is service learning as a support staff member and continued reflection upon the experience. Previous experience as a camper (especially Explorer veterans) is helpful. Limited to 6 participants total. While not guaranteed, we expect that successful completion of this program will result in paid employment for the rest of the summer and hopefully subsequent summers as well.

This is a 13 day high adventure program for serious campers ages 14 – 16 who love the out-of-doors. Session includes a 4 day, 3 night wilderness backpacking trip, High Ropes experience, special evening programs, more freedom and later bed times. Explorers have the opportunity to pursue more than one award club in a session, and have the freedom to switch clubs freely. While excellent preparation for our CIT program, this session is intended to be purely for enjoyment and includes no staff training components.
