Camp counselors are a key part of making the Outdoor Education Center’s summer programs fun and memorable. This exciting new camp will provide specialty training for our camp crew for the summer season!

Learn how to instruct a variety of outdoor activities: target archery, bowfishing, slingshot, tomahawk, atlatl, hiking, photography, survival, knot tying, outdoor cooking, marksmanship, and more! Most of the instructional training will be done through hands-on activities.

Crew preparation will also cover conservation knowledge, schedules, safety procedures and training, communication, and crew responsibilities.

This year there will be two weeks of counselor training. Both weeks will have instruction in the morning and practical experience in the afternoon with Bright Lights Camp. Each week will cover different topics and activities. Sign up for one week or both weeks.
